Notes

====General notes====
Infuse at 150 for taste on the dry side. If you go lower to 148 or so, no biggy.
====Batch#1. 3/5/2013====

  • Efficiency was 86%(!) so I had to cut out the .75 lb of sugar I was going to add.
  • Added .2oz Magnum for bittering to make up for oddly low Chinook AA%.
  • Mashing ended up at 152. I had something to do, so left it for 2 hours and it got down to 147. That may explain the very high efficiency.
  • Got close to 8 gallons in the kettle, so I boiled for about 30min down to 7.2gallons then added my 60min hops & started timer.
  • OG was 1.068 for exactly 5 gallons (inc starter)
    Thoughts after watching ferment: Maybe this will be too thick & dark. Could cut crystal out altogether, raise sugar to 1.b, & drop the 2 row to 6lbs for 1.014 FG. Would make it a lot dryer and lighter.
  • FG after 12days = 1.009. Wow! So dry. That means 7.74% ABV. Glad I didn't add that sugar.
  • Dry hopped after 14 days.
    ====Batch#2. 4/1/2013====
  • Lowering the 2row to 8lbs. Removing 1lb Munich. C20 to C10.
  • OG = 1.057 :-)
  • FG = 1.006 (BRIX 5) // ABV 6.84%
  • Tasting: Bittering IBU's need to come down a bit for this dry a beer. Next time aim for 60.
  • After 2 weeks, the beer somehow tasted rounded and less hop-forward. Thinking the Simcoe was old and the Nelson was too soft. I would say, drop the initial Chinook way down
