Notes

mashed in with ~5.12 gal @ 160 in a preheated tun. maintained mash temp @ 154-155 for 60 minutes stirring every 20 or 15. recirculated and drained to kettle. added ~3.05 gal @ 170, poured entire thing medium speed, not much sloshing, into mash tun, stirred, and let sit ~15 minutes. recirculated and drained to kettle. collected approximately 7 gallons (i don't have any reliable way to measure, but my eyeball says 7 or so). had some problems grabbing samples with the turkey baster for pre boil gravity. poured back turkey baster wort once and collected twice so may have some minor to moderate hot side aeration with this batch. measured 1.028 SG @ 126 degrees = 1.038 pre boil. major boil over while writing notes. turned down heat significantly and added .75 oz cascade hops @ T=60. maintaining medium boil. added .75 oz cascade @ T=20. added ~1tsp yeastex nutrient at T=10 and put the chiller in the pot. started chilling when done boiling. spent time running back and forth between sanitizing and chilling. may have neglected something as i was a little overwhelmed. measured og @ 1.044 @ 71 deg. approx 0.010 lower than expected. possibly used too much water in the mash. measured gravity again and it is looking more like 1.050, but there was a lot of break material. recorded as 1.048 and shooting for an ABV of 5% may want to adjust efficiency estimates to 68-70% next batch, as i was definitley not getting the estimated 82.8% big mess to clean up. had fun.
