This was a no chill batch, so i put the boil hops with a long duration to try and estimate the IBU better.
Tasting 7 day sample.
Warm, fresh off fermentor.
smells very citrusy, almost like orange juice.
Sample read at 1.010.
Tastes good, citrus, cleared up nicely after a week or so in the keg.

Fermentation ended up being a start at 16, peaked at 21 or so, then held at 19.

Ended at 1.047, with like 6.5 gallons... Bit of water from chiller was leaking into the kettle due to poor connection, dont think it was a ton but a trickle for a few minutes.
brewed on Monday May 6th, EOD on 7th i had to clean the blowoff multiple times, thing is a beast and i dont have enough headspace. Strip is reading about 20c, put in basement for cooler tile, fan and fact that if it blows it'll be easier to mop
