Notes

first brew of 2022; replaced my 3/8-inch ID hoses with new high temp hoses, so I can sanitize them with boiling water

the goal is a pleasant beer with enough carbonation

this will be the first batch brewed in Oakland, using our new water filtration system. the Oakland - new water profile is a guess, as is the amount of gypsum I will be adding to the mash. 5 grams seems about right.

racked to secondary (blue 5 gallon water bottle) on Thursday, July 28, wort temperature 68° F

bottled Sunday, July 31
prime with 5.5 oz. corn sugar boiled in 2 cups tap water
O.G. - 1.051
F.G. - 1.015
4.7% ABV
color is about 5-7 SRM
crowns: white with pint glass logo
