Notes

Partigyle. 1st 1/3 runnings should be be 1.114, with 2nd 2/3 being 1.057 1st third 5 gallons are for the IHP 2012 19th century Scottish mild. Plan was 120 minute mash at 150F. Wind is really blowing, and it's quite cold. strike water temp dropped, and I undershot at 145F. Left it there for 30 minutes before doing a decoction and hitting a perfect 150F. Left it for another 90 minutes. Didn't get a hydro reading, but this stuff was like maple syrup. Pitched 4 packs of rehydrated Windsor and had a volcano on my hands for three days...appear to have lost around a gallon of beer-soaked hops, with at least a gallon of hops, trub, and yeast in the bottom of the carboy. I'll be lucky to get much more than 3 gallons of beer out of this. Free rose to about 76F, which was 10F above ambient, that dropped to 66 (ambient), so I moved it closer to the heater to keep it up around 72, around day 4. Started dropping clear around day 6 or 7, completely dropped (but not crystal) at day 8, and turned off the heat. Dry hopped on March 17 (st. Patrick's Day). Racked one week later into a purged keg. 4/14/2012 bottled with 1.5 ounce of sugar (already had a little bit of carbonation). Finished 1.038. Gorgeous, honey-colored beer. Warming alcohol, pleasantly fruity. Very bitter, with a long finish, but balanced by all that residual sweetness. Looking forward to this.
