Notes

Summer brewing lends itself to heat tolerant yeast. The Voss Kveik can have an orange/citrus flavor which comes out in the 80F fermentation range. This is actually quite nice in an IPA which I previously brewed. I get less of the flavor in the lower to mid 70s, which is where I'll target this porter.

Add 14 lb malts to 5 gal water at 160 for first rest at 152f for 60 min. raise to 168 and drain

Chill to low to mid 70sF range. Pitch 20 oz yeast slurry from previous batch; aerate well. Ferment 10-12 days before bottling
