Notes

THEORY:

3.5 gal mash water
2.5 gal sparge

  • 1.5 gal absorption (5.33lb/gal rate)?
  • 1 gal boil-off/trub?
    3gal post-boil?

    .75 quarts/lb absorption?


    BREW:

    3.5gal mash
  • turned out to be a really thin mash, could easily get away with 2.5gal of mash (.5gal too much)

    OG = 1.046
    Primary: 4/17/2019
    Secondary: 4/24/2019
    FG = 1.026 (apparent attenuation of 44% [of 81%])
    Bottling: 4/30 (2.5gal total); 60g white table sugar in 1 cup water
    ABV est = 2.66%

    TASTING:

    Nice lemon/citrus aroma, but greatly lacking in body - once swallowed, flavors disappear quickly; could be due to ABV, maybe swap out 2lb of 2-row for Munich? Also add lemon zest and/or lemon peel in secondary for more citrus flavor. Watch mash temp to keep it around 150-155F.
