Notes

Brewed May 22, 2021

Started water to boil while grinding the grains. Decided on a single infusion of 152°F

Proceeded according to standard practice, mashed for 1 hour. Collected 5.5 gallons at 12 Brix (1.048). Added 1.25 gal of spring water for boil. This came out much too low regarding efficiency. Next time go back to decoction, efficiencies are much better.

Ended at 1.048. Fermented at 50°F for 3 weeks and then stepped up by 2-4 degrees per day for diacetyl rest until 68°F. Landed at 1.005. Racked on June 21. Cold crashed
