Originaly intended to do step mash, sent wrong version of recipe to cloud. Under-sparged and reduced boil time to 60 mins. Ran chiller until wort was under 70F, then sealed with solid stopper until at ferm temp. Exactly 5 gallons in kettle after boil and cooling, approx 4.75 gallons went into fermenter. Pitched yeast day 1. According to thermowell reading, temp was 50F. Looking at weather should be able to maintain that temp during primary fermentation. Maintained at 50F, ramped up to 61F for diacetyl rest. Cold crashed on back porch with heat wrap. Temperature in the carboy got as low as 32F, was at 39F when packaged. Closed transferred from carboy to keg wtih CO2. Placed keg in keezer for lagering.
