Notes

Recipe from Central Street Farmhouse in Bangor, Maine 2015-04-01: Temps held steady at 68ºF so far and transfered to secondary. SG is 1.015@70.9 or 1.016. (I measured 1.031 through the refractometer which just isn't right. Will have to check on it.) 2015-04-15: SG is 1.013@66.8ºF or 1.014 - OK. Moving from the warmer shop back into the brewery where temps are currently high but I'm turning the heat down to 60ºF. 2015-04-21: Using 3.75 oz of corn sugar for priming today. At 60ºF that should be about 2.4 volumes CO2. 1.014 @ 60.6ºF for FG of 1.014. We filled 49 12oz bottles plus the better part of one (10 oz) for 598 oz or 4.67 gal. Taste is good, mildly roasty, a touch sweet.
