Notes

Ingredient notes:
2x2lb bags of blood oranges (4lb total)
Yeast packaged on 12/28/16
Hops had lower AA% then expected, so adjusted hop schedule slightly (added 5 minute addition)

1/27/17: Smacked yeast pack before bed and left out on the counter overnight (I was lazy and did not make a starter). Yeast packaging date is 12/28/16.

1/28/17 (brew day): washed and zested blood oranges in the morning, being careful to avoid the pith. Ended up with 4oz of zest. Also added 2 cups of pulp.

Heated 3 gallons of water to 170 degrees. Added crushed malt in grain bag and covered for 30 minutes. Temp dropped to 150 by the end of the 30 minutes. Sparged 3 gallons of water over grains to bring total volume to 6 gallons. Discarded grains. Returned wort to boil.

Once boiling, killed heat and added 2lbs LME. Once returned to boil, began 60 minute hop schedule starting with 1oz Magnum. Cooled to 70 with immersion chiller. Pitched at 65 degrees. O.g. 1.069 at 68 degrees (sample warmed up a bit in the warm house). Set ferm chamber to 62 degrees.

The late LME addition was cold from being outside and cooled things way down. Paused timer at 15 min for 10 minutes or so to get back up to boil.

Ended up at 1.069 instead of target of 1.065. Decided to just go with it rather than dilute.

2/1/17: ramped up to 66 degrees as primary fermentation subsided.

2/5/17: ramped up to 69 to finish fermentation.

2/6/17: Boiled 1oz of oak chips in 1 cup of water. Poured water and chips into primary. Added dry hop (Amarillo and citra). Will let sit for 7 days at 69 degrees.

2/11/17: started cold crash to 35 degrees

2/13/17: keg day. O.G. 1.019 at 65 degrees. Set at 30 psi, 33 degrees, no shaking. Estimated ABV 6.7%.
