Notes

For next time, mash at 5F hotter in order to get the mash into the mid-150’s, for a residual sweetness from the malt. When kegging, add 1T of fresh grated ginger.

** 11/23/19 My efficiency may have been affected by either: the mash temperature or the ph of the mash. The mash temperature came out way lower than I expected. I added 1 qt. of boiling H2O in order to raise it up to 147F, which is about 9F less than I wanted. The honey is going to be added after 1 week in the primary, in order to spund and age with the beer. The oak will be in the primary, so it will only get 1 week of oak. The yeast starter is 1.5 qt. There was extra wort in the mash tun and in the boil kettle, that would not fit in the fermentor, so I re boiled and have a 1/2 gallon of 1.068 winter saison running alongside this ale.
