Notes
Target Pre-Boil Volume: 5 gal
Target Post-Boil Volume: 3 gal
Target Post-Boil Gravity: 1.269

Actual Pre-Boil gravity at 5 gallons: 1.116, estimated post-boil wort gravity: 1.193
(probably didn't use enough corn sugar, weight measurement was skewed)

Mash with:
1/2 tsp Calcium Chloride
1 tsp Epsom Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Soda

Boil:
- mix all boil hops together (6 oz) and split into 24 equal size additions of .25 oz each
- add one hop addition every 5 minutes during boil (measurements in ingredients set at 1 hr, average time in boil)

- remove 1 pint wort (@1.193), mix with 2 pints water and make starter (@1.064) for WLP099

- mix 3 Qts wort (@1.193) with 1 gallon water for primary (@1.083)
***Use plastic fermenter with lid to allow for easy wort/hop additions***
- pitch 1056

- put remaining ~2 gallons wort (@1.193) in sanitized container, refrigerate

Primary Fermentation:
- Wort addition
----- once fermentation starts, perform wort addition every 12 hours for 8.5 days (17 additions):
-------- add 2 cups from reserved wort using sanitized measuring cup
----- *** monitor gravity of primary to check for slowing ***
- On addition 10, add high gravity yeast starter
- Add oxygen daily (evening) for 4 days. Stir wort vigorously with mash paddle.

Secondary Fermentation:
- Transfer to secondary after 10 days

Dry Hop (secondary only):
- mix dry hops together and divide into 28 equal portions
- add 1 portion daily (evening) for 28 days

Bottle:
- bottle after 28 days in secondary
- 12 oz bottles
- measure gravity before bottling: G
- bottle with:
2.5 - ( (G - FG) * 1.6 * 10^4 ) / 11
ounces of corn sugar
Expected volumes CO2 with no additional sugar:
678 * ( G - FG ) + 0.9


Total expected effective OG: 1.136




ACTUALS:
- OG at beginning of primary: 1.075
- Effective OG: 1.153
- Starting with addition 5, added .19 lbs corn sugar for next 6 additions, then .38 lbs for following 3 additions
- added 099 with addition 7
- 10 total wort additions, 13 total additions
- dry hopped with additions 11 to 22
- racked evening after final dry hop addition (time 23, day 11.5)
- gravity at time 8: 1.058, at time 10: 1.070, at time 23: 1.042
