Notes

Check pre-boil gravity on first runnings and recirculate into mash tun if it needs to be raised. Hops are timed into the boil. For initial brewing, yeast should be pitched at top end of acceptable temperature range (74-78). Let wort set at pitched temperature for 90 minutes before beginning to drop temperature to the bottom end of the fermenting temperature range for the yeast used. With the Czech yeast that temperature is 50 degrees. Dry hop for the final seven days of aging period. We could experiment with 5 gallons of the batch using a pilsner lager yeast?
