Used 1g Chalk/Calcium Carbonate, 2g Gypsum, and 5g Calcium Chloride (after steeping 1# Caramel 40) to the water, and before adding extract (before the boil). I'm not sure if this will affect the beer since this was an extract batch and had no mash.

I measured a pH of 5.2 after steeping grain and adding Water Salts.

Due to a bad thermometer, I cooled the finished wort to 45-50 degrees F. I moved the wort to a 6 gal carboy and put a ferm-wrap on it before pitching the yeast. At 57F, I aerated with oxygen for about 1 minute and pitched a mason jar of Vermont IPA yeast that had been siting in a fridge for about 1 month. I let the yeast sit out the day before brew day. There was about a finger nail's worth of yeast sediment on the bottom of the jar. I did not decant nor make a starter for this beer, though I probably should have.

I pulled about 5.5 gal of wort into the fermentor with about 0.25 gal of wort left on the bottom of the fermentor, which I used to grow up a different yeast for a different beer. I got an OG reading of 1.058.
