Notes
Honey is added at end of primary directly to fermenter and should be soft varietal like orange blossom.

1/2 minerals added at mash the other half added during the boil after sparging.

Lacto starter made with 2 gallons warm apple juice - 90 degrees plus. Pitch and let sit for one week. Add to primary when the yeast is pitched.

Ferment at 64 then let naturally rise into mid to high 70's to finish. Add honey/fruit after the malt has mostly finished fermenting. Keep honey ferment cool then let free rise after a few days. Add oak once most of ferment is done before racking for 5 days.

Total water needed is 6 gallons. Mash strike temp is 6 gallons at 130 degrees to hit protein rest at 120 for 15 min then raise for 45 minutes to 148 with Herms and then mash out at 170. Only collect first running's as all water added to mash. Collect 3 gallons after 90 min boil and add 1 gallon honey and 2 gallons Apple juice.
