Notes

Brew Day - November 5, 2017

0830 (0000 min) - start with prep, grinding grain, heating tap water shooting for about 166° F.

0930 (0060) Add grain and 14 qts H20 to mash at 155° (approx 1.1 qt/lb)

1030 (0120) Sparge with 178°F water

1140 (0190) Pulled until reached 3°Brix - total of 7.5 gal that combined landed at 12.4° Brix (SG 1.050). Placed on boil.

1215 (0225) - Begin boil. Pitch 2 oz US Saaz

1315 (0285) - Force cool, pitched yeast - landed @ 1.065

1345 (0315) - Cleaned up

November 11, 2017 - Add 2 quarts Very Best Strong Dark Baking (old Grade B/C) Maple Syrup, 3 split vanilla beans, and 1 tsp of ground cinnamon in secondary. First heated all to 200°F and allowed to cool covered all day. Racked beer onto sugars, beer was at 1.023 SG (attenuation of .65%)

December 17, 2017 - Finally finished and racked it to a keg...the secondary ferment took a long time to kick off but when it finally did (approx 4-5 days into the secondary) it bubbled about once every 10 seconds for a month. FG was 1.022 in the end so all sugar fermented but it is still sweet. We'll see how it balances
