Mash Chemistry and Brewing Water Calculator

A. Hops %AA adj. for age/storage.
B. Vorlauf between mash and sparge to help clear visible debris from the wort.
C. Add apricot puree during secondary fermenter stage, not in the active primary to avoid scrubbing of the apricot aroma during active phases of fermentation.
D. Unlike the popular but bland and tasteless beers made for Americans, this beer is Satiating, Satisfying, and Stupendous.
E. Final gravity was much lower than the computer prediction. After 21 days in fermenters, the FG was 10.05, so the ABV is actually 5.91%.
F. A little over-carbonated on this batch, which I attribute to the higher bottling temperatures(76F).
