Notes

Original starting gravity was 1.046, finished with a FG of 1.011. sample tasted. was very crisp, clean and surprisingly dry finish for the gravity being higher than expected.


Used 1/2 pint of US-05 yeast from "The American Cream ale" and made a 1.5 liter starter with it on brew day about 5 hour's before pitching. took off in about 4 hour's and finished in 3 day's. fermented at 65 F for 5 day's then raised temp to 71 F for 10 day's, brought down to 60 F the next 4 day's.
