Notes

Hops, yeast, and specialty grain from DeFalcos, MOPA from inventory. Rainy day...sprinkling throughout the mash Mash: Initial temp 155°F, left lid off and stirred, at 5 minutes 153°F lid back on, stirred again at 15min 152°F, still 152°F at 45min. Lautering: Continuous tangential sparge with about 1" of water above the grain bed. Very little grain particulate to boiler. Boil: 8gal start 1.032 @ 95 = 1.037 PBG. Too much water in sparge? Boiling with near-max firing to try to concentrate wort. Ferment: Cooled to 65°F, OG=1.053, Racked on Day 8, 69°F, FG=1.013, still bubbling. Crash chilled and added gelatin, predissolved in H2O on 6-19. Keg: FG=1.013, transferred through 4x cheesecloth, star san sanitized. Noted air bubbles getting into the auto siphon - must have to do with the dP across the cheesecloth. Force carb, running at 10psi on the regulator.
