Notes
  1. Begin this step 5 days prior. To 400mL of water, add 300g DME, 100g Sucrose, 1g Yeast Nutrient, 1g Go-Ferm, 0.5g DAP. Boil for 15 minutes and then cool. Pitch 2 packets of US-05 yeast and ferment for 4 days, shaking multiple times daily.

  2. One day prior, prepare the water for the mash. 30L of water is added to a fermenter (Chubby) and dechloraminated with a Campden tablet. Degas overnight. Adjust pH to 5.0 and adjust salt levels before mashing. Withdraw 27L of water for the mash. Ensure chubby fermenter contains 25psi release valve (red).

  3. Heat 27L of water to 67 degrees and place a recirculation pump and bazooka shield in the pot. Begin recirculating and prepare grain to add to three grain bags. Strike grain into water and rest for 120 minutes. Mash out after 120 minutes for 15 minutes at 78 degrees.

  4. At the end of the mash, sparge with 8L of water at 78 degrees. Boil wort once all sparge water is combined.

  5. Hop according to the hopping schedule for 60 minutes.

  6. At 15 minutes remaining, at the Yeast nutrient, Go-Ferm, DAP, Whirlfloc tablet and Irish moss (rehydrated). Add the immersion coil and prepare ice for chilling.

  7. At flameout, begin chilling for 30 minutes.

  8. Clean and sanitize a pressure fermenter. With a pump, add the beer to the fermenter and prepare to pitch yeast. Note: Take filled fermenter to the place it will be fermented, as moving the fermenter after this point is not recommended. Maximum volume is 29L.

  9. Pre-prepare a hop bag filled with dry hops and seal it containing two neodymium magnets. Affix to the inside wall of the fermenter above the waterline and secure with an external neodymium magnet.

  10. Add yeast to the wort, making sure not to pour the yeast over the hop bag inside the fermenter. Seal the fermenter and begin fermentation. Pressurise and flush the fermenter with CO2 so that the hops do not oxidise. Ferment for 14 days. At 2 days at High Krausen, release hops and dry hop. Keep pressure at 15psi. Three options can be taken near the end of fermentation:
    a. LLT 19L of the batch into a Fermenter King Jr. and keep the remaining for bottling and aging. 19L destined for Corny Keg.
    b. Split batch into two Fermenter King Jr. fermenters. Condition separately for 1.5 months.
    c. LLT all batch into another Chubby fermenter and condition for 1.5 months.

  11. Cold crash beer at 1 degree Celsius and then LLT to a Keg without the need for carbonation. Keg beer and condition for 5 days at 0.2bar.
