NotesFrom BYO, October 2017, Pg 71, “The Kernel Brewery’s Export India Porter Clone”. Hops changed due to availability.
2017-10-15: Brew Day: Only error was to add the final hop adition 5 min early - it went in with the yeast nutrient. Otherwise very smooth.
2017-10-16: Temp up to 72°F yesterday and today. I am keeping the room temp at 66°F.
2017-10-17: Still as yesterday. Going away for a few days.
2017-10-24: Racking to secondary along with 2.5 oz of EKG hops. SG is firstname.lastname@example.org°F or 1.020. Even flat and warm, this stuff s great!
2017-10-25: Raised room temp to 68°F this morning to encourage yeast to complete. Carboy is now (13:00) at 67°F and bubbling remains slow.
Much later in day: problems with the dry hop bag have been creating overflows through the lock. I would use the Wine-Thief to remove the beer in the carboy neck just to have it fill and fill the airlock again. While very difficult, I removed the dry hops bag (2.5 oz of EKG) - hopefully without contaminating the beer. Grrrr…. Need to use fewer hops in more bags and with weights - or do it in the keg next time.
2017-10-26 09:46: I want the room temp down at it’s normal 66°F so I am putting the belt on the 5G plastic carboy. It fits loose with the small spring so I suspect its warming contribution will be low - which I want. The carboy currently read 68°F.
2017-10-27 08:22: Carboy temp now at roughly 74°F and bubbling has not realy improved, but continues slowly. 14:12: Still 74°F and minimal bubbling. I don’t like the temp so high without any benefit. I just unplugged it the heat belt.
2017-10-31: Checked SG with Refractometer. 9.2 Brix and OG of 1.068, results in SG of 1.017. On target per BeerSmith. Carboy temp was 66°F. Racking to Keg #6.
2018-05-23: Kicked and much loved!
