Pitch yeast at 65-68, let free rise to 72, hold roughly 5 days until fermentation is almost wrapped up. Dry hop, under pressure, day 7, let hops sit 3-5 days until CO2 production ends, and cold crash for 2 days before transferring. Let condition in the keg at serving temp a further 7-10 days.

Brewed solo with the dogs

4.2 gallons of mash water, treated with 10g of calcium chloride, and 4g of gypsum. Target mash of 154, strike temp of ~167. Preheated mash tun with 173 degree water. Subbed 1 gallon of Sparge water with tap.

Doughed in to achieve rest of 153, held for 60 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Vorlaufed ~5 minutes before slowly draining first runnings into bucket.

Collected 2.5 G of first runnings, sparged with 180 deg water. Let sit for 15 minutes before vorlaufing for ~5 minutes. Wort quite clear for second runnings.

Drained second runnings directly into kettle, target pre-boil volume between 6.9 G.

Boiled 1 hour with heat stick and ultra burner on "4".

Rapidly cooled with copper immersion chiller to 175, added whirlpool charge, created whirlpool with chiller, added lid and let set.

Continued rapidly cooling to 73 before letting rest 30 minutes, lid on, to settle before transfer. Transferred hard through spout/hose to fermentor, yeast pitched (1.5L) half way through transfer to incorporate.

Fermented in modified 5 G corny keg with filter around dip tube.

FV placed in computer room, ambient temp ~65 deg.

OG: 1.060

Finished cleaning 5:40 pm

Notes: left 0.25 G in kettle after filling FV, and OG was slightly low, boil harder next brew.

@12 hrs - blow off already out of flask and into secondary bucket. Cleaned and refilled with fresh sanitizer

@24 hrs - ferm slowed considerably but still consistent with slowing blowoff.

10/27/21: keg opened, 8oz of dry hops added, sealed immediately and purged with CO2. Keg sealed off to dry hop under pressure built up from refermentation.

11/01/21: keg placed into kegerator to crash cool for 48 hours

11/04/21: Eeepa! packaged. Tried keg to keg transfer with a jumper cable. Ran into a lot of foaming and loss issues because of an error (keeping the gas connected to the receiving keg). Improvements for next time - set pressure to 5psi on both kegs, remove gas line from receiving keg, attached liquid jumper lines, vent PRV on receiving keg and it should flow smoothly.

Finally Gravity: 1.012
