Notes

Clear wort boil-down notes (Optional Step):
-------------------
(Optionally) perform a separate boil-down of 1.00 gallon of vorlaufed wort into a syrup using the following steps:

  1. Extract 1.0 gallon of wort at the beginning of clear runoff into a 3-5 gallon pot.
  2. Boil the wort down until it becomes a dark mahogany brown and is bubbling with large bubbles.
  3. Be careful NOT to burn the maltose syrup.
  4. The result will be approximately 24-26 ounces of syrup.
  5. Re-crash the syrup by adding wort from the ongoing main boil.
  6. Pour the dissolved liquid back in to the main boil.
