Notes

Mash start ended up being about 151F. I added half the dark grains at the beginning of the mash and half 30min in to avoid extracting tannins. Forgot to test the temp before I mashed out but the grain bed was at about 147. The mash out of about 2.75 gallons brought it up to about 167F. Added and extra half gallon to the sparge to make up for liquid loss.
