Notes

Just Watched England thrash Panama 6-1. It needs a beer.
Had to (slightly) adjust volume levels above to achieve what actually happened. Boil Size was 19.75. Post boil size was very near 13 Lt. with a SG of 1.078!!! NOT WHAT ABOVE CALCULATED TO - Why?
This required an addition of 4.2 Lt to get calculated starting SG of 1.059. This (should) mean a final ABV of 6.1%. Fermenting seemed to stop so added Youngs Yeast which went off like a rocket.
Taste test of SG sample of 1.021 (3 days in) suggests Strong Taste. Will sample again on Sunday 1/7/18 when Ferment should stop and DryHop start in Secondary FV.
