Notes

Starter made up ( 1 litre) about 22 hours before hand. Had reached high krausen by the time I used it. Very low efficiency, probably because the wheat didn't do much. The previous batch, using just cracked grain came in fairly close to taget. Next time must try flaked, rather than cracked wheat. Also, I stopped sparging when SG hit 1.018 20/01/04 Racked into conditioning cube after 6 days primary, 10 days secondary and into serving fridge to condition. Kegged on 07/02/04
