Notes

12/9/17
Made yeast starter yesterday (~1L).
Today: Make Belgian candi sugar (syrup). Steep grains 30min at 66C, pour into grain bag, sparged with 68C water into boil pot.
Add DME and water, bring to boil.
Add 60' hops and gypsum. Boil 40'. Add 20' hops and irish moss. Boil 20' more. Chill.
Add to primary with remaining water and yeast. Aerate. Determine Brix.
Brix =22.8 = 1.096 (Higher than expected. volume may be lower than 5.5 gal, but it is certainly > 5)
Ferment.
