Notes

Prepared the Mash Tun by filling with 3 gallons of hot water ~ 130 degrees (left for 30 minutes). Poured water from Mash tun into kettle and bring to 4 gallons - heated to 170 degrees. Poured water into mash tun, added grain and stirred for 5 minutes. Temp at ~ 157 degrees. Sealed. At 30 minutes, temperature - 156 degrees.

At 60 minutes, drain liquid in mash tun to grain bed, add 1 gallon of 170 degree water, stir lightly, and drain to grain bed, repeat twice more. Drain completely into kettle. ~5 gallons of wort from sparge

Begin boil. All adds on schedule. OG 1.061

Aerated. Ended up with 4 gallons final for fermentation. Did not add water.

Add first dry hop (4/22) (8 days) 0.5 oz of Simco and 0.5 oz Citra. SG - 1.009 (abv - 6.9%)

Plan to add x oz of Citra for final 4 days. Bottled 5/7.

Future: during sparging, gently prise the grain away from the wall to avoid potential coning. First gallon direct, 2nd- prise, 3rd - prise, 4th direct. Will provide greater extraction potential.
