Notes

1/7: Prepared starter in kitchen, krausen after 12 hours 1/8: Brewday went fine, a tad low on mashing temp, but better than before. Moved to basement closet to ferment in perfect 50F 1/9: Beginning to see activity - good krausen by the end of the day 1/10: temp a bit low (46F), but good krausen and activity. May check on range with Wyeast 1/15: SG @ 1.040-45, lots of smoke flavor. Still sitting at 46F, hydrometer reading may be off. No rush, though 1/27: SG @ 1.019-20. A little bit to go. Tastes pretty good, intense smoke and no detectable off flavors. Test in 7 days 1/31: SG @ 1.020, placing in 55-60F ambient to finish off 2/3: Still at ~1.020. May be done, due to the higher mashing temp (which is not undesirable at all) 2/6: Racked to keg with SG @ 1.015 - close to perfect. Very good smoke flavor. Slight "tart" edge, which should subside in lagering. Will hook up to CO2 tomorrow 2/12: Tasted - extremely smoky, especially when warmed up a bit. Two more weeks in keg, and it'll be perfect
