Achieved target mash temp, rested for 1 hour. Vorlaufed until clear of particulate, partially hazy. Batch sparged and ended up with 6.9 G pre boil volume. Boiled 40 minutes (adjusted from original) to hit target gravity. Rapidly cooled with copper immersion chiller to 165 deg, whirpooled hops for 15 minutes. Continued rapid chill until 70 deg.
Transferred roughly 5.25 G of cooled wort to 6 G new glass carboy. Placed in temp controlled freezer set to 67 deg. Once stabilized at target temp pitched still active 1.2 L Amalgamation II starter. Fermentation activity was not observed until day 5, approximately 3" krausen. Fermentor smells of stone fruit and tropical fruit punch.
