Notes

Yeast Starter:
1 packet of 1388, starting yeast count = 92 Billion Cells
stir plate using Braukaiser meethod
stage 1 - 1.3L water with 134g DME = 279 Billion Cells
stage 2 - 1.3L water with 134g DME = 403 Billion Cells
pitch yeast at 17 deg.C and increase to 27 over 5 days.
leave in primary for additional week at 27 deg.C.

Adde 0.97kg invert sugar to primary @ high krausen (30 hours after pitching yeast)

Rack off to secondary 10days. Gravity after 16 days still at 1.021. Added 300g sugar boiled for 20min with 0.3g of citric acid and 200ml of water to get it re-started. Fermentation started up again but remained at 1.021 after a few days.

Cold conditioned for 3 weeks at 0.5degC. SG at bottling = 1.020... higher that intended but it will have to do...

Bottle at CO2 level of 3.0 (200g dextrose).

SG measured from bottle after 1 month... 1.018...
