Notes

brew 4/18/2013 Preboil gravity of 1.040 less the sugar in 12.5 gal Postboil 10.75 gallons at 1.050 First weekday brew day. Started at 6 pm and finished aeration at 9:30 pm. Clean-up about .5 done. All prep work done the day before measuring, sugar invert, and hop measuring. Threw 1oz cascade in at flame out b/c well I love cascade and they were in the freezer (pellets). Never use brown sugar to make invert sugar - it was like cement. Took about 20 minutes to get it out of the pyrex with boiling water. 7/01/2013: Finished first keg of this beer; it was very good. Improved alot with more time in the keg, brightened up and yeast dropped out. Pleased the non beer crowd, nothing super fancy about it, but still delicious. I would try to bring the grain bill down slightly shoot for something like 1.046 next time. I kegged the second half about a week ago and the first pint was awful. So, I'm hoping that it will clean-up in the keg also - but I'm worried it sat in the primary (HDPE bucket) for too long, let it sit there for 2 months as I was completley out of carboys & kegs. So, we'll see it did just taste very yeasty and was also super cloudy with particulate.
