Notes

New experimental post fermentation clarification process:

  1. Once FG reached, cold crash x 24 hours.
  2. Add 5 mL Biofine x 24 hours.
  3. Keg beer, add CO2 to create seal but don't carbonate, chill x 24 hours
  4. Gelatin fine in keg x 48 hours
  5. Pull off 2 pints and carbonate

    YEAST SUGGESTIONS: Wyeast #1010 American Ale, Nottingham dry yeast

    Suggested Mash Temperature:
    A lower mash temperature is recommended to create a more fermentable wort that will lead to an easy-drinking
    beer. We suggest a mash temperature of 148° - 150°F. With lower
    mash temperatures, you may extend the mash time to 75-90 minutes to ensure complete conversion.

    Fermentation Schedule:
    We recommend a primary fermentation of two weeks at 64° - 72°F. A secondary fermentation of one week may be used to improve clarity and reduce sedimentation, if desired.
