Notes
  • Aerate wort for 10' with aeration stone and air pumptch yeast below 85 deg
  • Pitch yeast at 70 and cool to 52
  • Ferment at 52 deg
  • Re-rack and keep at 52 deg
  • Close to or at F.G. conduct Dycetyl rest
    Slowly bring up to 67 deg over 3+ days. Hold for 48-60 hours.
  • Slow crash to 32 deg
  • Keep at 35 deg for at least 30 days.

    Actual F.G. = 1.0207 so 4.73 very clear and the color seems right on.

    All temperature changes should be less than 10 degrees per day!

    This beer worked really well. Clear, crisp, slight honey flavor picked up by most tasters. Some tasters picked up the grapefruit in the hops. Well received!

    O.G. Reading was 13.8 BRIX at 75 Deg (1.053)
    F.G Reading =

Bottle conditioned and came up a little shy in the carbonation. Would be excellent if CO2 charged properly
