Notes

End Mash PH 5.6

Recipe was originally targeting 65% efficiency at 3 gallons into the fermenter but I wound up with less wort so I adjusted efficiency and wort to fermenter in recipe. Still trying to figure out the new brew kettle.

Followed recipe as listed with no issues other than exact temps on whirlpool. Temps were near the range and the last whirlpool hop I just let the chiller run for the remaining time until it reached pitch temp.

I aerated for 30 mins then pitched a ballooned Wyeast smack pack and let it aerate for about 5 more mins. Fermentation going strong 12 hours in.

Dropped first dry hop 48 hours in onto high krausen during fermentation activity.

After 5 days I took a sample and the gravity reading and had hit 1.018 estimated FG. The sample tasted fantastic! I raised the ferm temp to 70F to finish out fermentation and after 2 days I dropped it down to 52F to drop yeast and hops.

At day 9 I put the second dry hop charge in my hop screen, placed in the keg, and purged the keg with c02 before racking the beer through the hops and into the keg. I then purged the headspace and sealed the keg before putting 10psi in the keg.

I placed the temp probe on the keg and raised the temp to 68 to let the dry hop sit for 24-48 hours before dropping to 38 degrees and putting on gas in the kegerator at 2.4 vols.

This beer is absolutely incredible! By far the best hop combo I've done and definitely the best results in drawing flavor and aroma with this process!
