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
