Brewed Mar 27 2019

Mostly copied forward the previous version of rings of light (oct 2018)

Added to mash water:
2 g Gypsum
6.5 g ca cl
2.5ml lactate

Brew day smooth and easy. All calculation previously determined by last brew of this beer so I pretty much did everything from memory.

Mashed in 4.1 gallons (3.1 gallons was tap water.) Sparged with room temp water 4 gallons. (total 8.1 gallons)

Long hop stand started at 180 (dropped to 160). Added the columbus and cascade loose. Solid whirl pool with drill paddle x3 for the first 20 minutes. let it settle and started transferring to FV after 40 minutes total. Transfer off hops complete at 60 minutes total.

5.4 gallons in FV - with gas qd lid and co2 capture bag on.

OG 1.049 on hydrometer. Chilled to 73 and into fermenter.
Pitched a slury from the fridge of Imperial Juice used from last Ipa about 3 weeks ago. ~1/4 of a mason jar (likely over pitch).

Ferm 67, ramped to 69

4-3-19 a little activity left. Soft crash to 58.

4-4-19 - closed transfer to keg. Used the Janish keg filter with loose whole leaf hops in the keg. 2oz of El dorado, 2oz of amarillo. Easy closed transfer. left at room temp for 24 hours. then into fridge and put on 30 psi for 48 hours. then turned down to 15psi. carb. finished at 1.014

4-8-19 - pretty decent carb. lots of red berries, tropical fruit, pungent, oily... but too sweet. missing some bitterness? Too high FG? the higher mash left it at 1.014 so missing that drier hop pressence i think. thinking about taking it out of fridge to let the dry hops in keg work on some perceived bitterness for a few more days. thinking about adding some isomerized hop oil? hmm
too sweet, too much GNO! 17% plus the higher fg, too sweet yuck.
