Notes2017-09-15: Making starter per Starter tab. Starting with 1L water before 10 minutes of boil and hoping for around .75L. I started the 10 minute boil at 18:15 so its a late start.
2017-09-16: Brew Day:
Shy on grain from what I thought I had. Low by 1# of Maris Otter. Adding DME to boil to make up part of deficit.
Water level below BrewMometer in 10 G MT so I added a gallon of water to bring the water/grain ratio up to 1.35. Seems reasonable anyway.
Rice hulls plugged the Flow Meter. Took it apart from the top to clear it. Lesson: Don't put any hulls in on the bed - mix it all in with the grain.
Bad day. I did not enter Top Link program correctly and it ended at the end of the Beta-glucan Rest. Result was not a big deal, only that we held on the rest for an extra 10 minutes or so until I made the needed edits and restarted the Profile.
No Measured Post Mash Gravity as the DME was in the BK waiting for the wort to arrive. Too much wort gathered. I need to stop worrying about what's in the RIMSRocket. It's irrelevant. I will boil some of it away, csrewing up my numbers, but having the right OG and volume I suspect. 7.25G is low enough, here we go...
OG = 1.043 on the refractometer and hydromeer shows email@example.com°F or 1.045. Splitting the difference...
2017-09-17: Bubbling away but the room temp stayed high (70°F) from brewing and the wort reached up to 72°F, Too high. It's cool out. I think I will run the fan for a spell.
2017-09-18: While room temps this morning were still around 70°F hey have now dropped back to the desired 68°F and the fermentors have also dropped some.
2017-09-19: Room temps are back down to 66°F and the wort temp is dropping as well. Krausen fell back in overnight and bubbling has slowed.
