Notes

I don't have an amount of Sparge Water as my sparge routine is to add 180 degree water, then sparge until I reach preboil volume of 6.5 gallons in the boil kettle.

Fermentation Schedule: 2 weeks in a single vessel fermenter. Started Fermentation at 64 (f) and ramped up to 68 degrees (f) over the course of the two week fermentation. I would recommend lagering (in the keg) at serving temperature for 2 weeks as the flavor continues to improve over time. this will allow the beer to properly carbonate. Good luck leaving the tap handle alone for the two weeks though.

Added Yeast Nutrient and 1 Whirlfoc tablet with 10 minutes left in the boil.

Turned out great. It had a nice hint of lemon with an estery farmhouse nose.
