Notes

Plums are dried ones
got 30 L of 1.058 wort. 92 % efficiency. Sparging took really long though - 24 hours. Start fermentation 12.01.2020 at 35C (severe problems with cooling). Yeast cake from #184.

after one week add 1 kg of candy syrup (in many points there might have occured a contamination). Let's stop those bugs from spore-growing)
