Notes

For this batch use 23.5 gallons of water due to all the hops and collect 18 for the boil due to losses from hops.

Strike with 9 gallons at 160 to hit 147. Raise through Herms to 155 after 45 minutes. Verify Mash PH is 5.2. Adjust if necessary with lactic acid. Sparge with 11 gallons at 165-170


Pacman Yeast. Made a 2 liter starter

Pitch yeast at 65. Add 1vl for 2min of pure 02 prior to pitching. Ferment at 65. Raise to 70 degrees after a few days to clear diactyle.

Hops added at 5 minutes in hopback/whirlpool. Dry hops after most of primary done and left for 5 days then racked off while crash cooling.
