Notes
Added the cane sugar to increase SG, see in the fermentables.

Made a 1.5L yeast starter, this was very old yeast, hopefully, the beer will be fine.

Pitched at 64 deg. F., and allow temp. to slowly raise to at least 72 deg. F. over the next 4-5 days. Then allow to rest for 1 week at 75 deg. F.

Crash cool to 55 deg. F. for 3-4 DAYS, then bottle.
