Notes

Originally intended 200g flaked rye, but couldn't get it on time.
Step mash:
58C 90min
70C 30min

Add 10g-12g crushed coriander seeds at flameout. Also, 5-8g crushed grains of paradise.
Cool to 16C and pitch T-58. Aerate at:
pitch
pitch+1h
pitch+12h
pitch+24h
Keep rousing yeast by swirling, as often as possible.

Counting time from pitch, raise temperature by 0.8C every 12h, stop raising at 29C.

When raising to ~21C, pitch WLP099 from a large decanted starter.

After reaching 29C, keep at 29C until fermentation ends. WLP099 is slow!
