11/11/2020-Brewed this with 1# less MO and still hit target. Will ferment on oak. No water changes, other than filter + 1/4 Campden tablet.

Don't add any salts to this next batch.

Don't use raw/roasted woods to avoid infection!8/1/2020-Brewing this with some leftover hops. The original recipe we all like calls for 1oz Nugget 60, 1oz Amarillo 15, 1oz Amarillo WP. I am also going to ferment this on 4oz roasted sugarcane. Didn't have Irish Ale yeast at LHBS last time, will use Dry English Ale WL007. I am going to put these numbers into MashMadeEasy for mineral/acid/base additions. I had to dump this batch.

12/7/19-almost hit all the numbers, using the new brew location, so that might play into it a little bit. I think one of my 1ozAmarillo was light, so I threw in .4ozNugget that was a leftover in the WP. WTF, it’s beer. I may put oak in the keg, not sure yet.

This batch got infected
8/4/19-The hydro sample tasted a little thin, not roasty enough, and a little sour. Perhaps the amarillo hops? I also will mash at a higher temp next time in order to get more body. Thinking of changing the recipe to include more roasts malts or toasting the flaked grains in the oven for 10 minutes to add some toasty-roasty character. No oak, no whiskey. Maybe oak only next time. Had to go out tot he driveway and slowing open up the bottles as they fountained stout everywhere. Probably should have taken video.

**Also added to the second batch were 1/2 oz oak chips & 2 oz. Irish Whiskey (1 Gallon Batch). It was ok, but a little sweet for my taste, as I like a dry stout.
