Notes

Total Water Volume Needed = 10.50 gal
Mash Water = 5.00 gal @ 164 Deg
Mash Temp = 152 for 60 minutes
Sparge Water = 5.50 gal @ 170 Deg
Sparge Sit Time = 15 minutes

Add the following to each 5 gallons of water:
Gypsum - 2 tsp
Calcium Chloride - 1/2 tsp

Pre-Boil Volume = 7.75 Gallons
Add 5 drops Fermcap-S at boil
Add Corn Sugar with 15 minutes left on the boil

Filter hops by putting a 5 gallon paint strainer bag into the primary and pouring wort through the strainer before pitching yeast

Rehydrate US-05 prior to pitching
1) Warm the dry yeast to room temperature
2) In a sanitized container, prepare 1/2 cup of sterile water at 95-105°F
3) Sprinkle the dry yeast on top of the water, trying to avoid setting up large, dry clumps.
4) Let sit 15 minutes, then gently stir.
5) When the yeast has reconstituted, gently stir again to form a cream and let sit another 5 minutes.
6) Carefully and slowly, adjust the temperature of the yeast to within 15°F of the wort temperature.
7) Pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel, ideally as soon as possible.
