Notes

Mashed in - lost 3 degrees from kettle to mash tun for this 10g. batch. Tried to adjust pH from 5.8 with malic acid. Added maybe 5 or 6 drops - didn't seem to move anything. Fail. Mash settled at 153. Mixed chemicals all into mash - none into sparge.

First - 1.085
Middle - 1.050
Last - 1.008


Preboil 1.048 so we added a gallon to bring it down to 1.044
OG 1.054

gained .08 SG when boiling 10 g. batch
line up outflow of sparge with rivet so it doesn't dribble
line up boiler outflow in between spokes of stand so you can tilt it

-2nd batch-

Replaced Carmunich with CaraBelgium

Preboil - 1.075
Original - 1.050
