Notes

The American smoked malt is Briess Mesquite smoked.
This batch broke but drinkable (too much sparge water due to valve clog, left easily a gallon of wort in the tun b/c didn't have time for extra-long boil). Aiming for 9%, hit 6% or so, but still good. Anything in the 7-8% range could be sweet spot.

2 packets S-05, pitched at 66F & hold 4 days till activity subsides
Warm to 69F
Day 10: lower mesh bag with oak cubes into primary (weighted & suspended)
Day 40: rack/bottle.
