Notes

Brew day. The decoctions went okay, the second decoct I only used liquid, I should have used grain which left me short of mashout temp. I also need to check the sparge water pH and add correct amount of Phos acid, I only added .3ml. Using a sight glass on the pump outlet, I noticed how clear the runoff was to the fermenter. I got down to 11lts left in the kettle and the trub was pretty thick and I ran about 7lts into FV to get my volume. Next time I will collect at least 17US gallons and leave three gallons in the kettle. I really liked the clear runoff to the FV. Yeast pitched at 1900. Day 1. 24 hrs. 13 degrees reducing. Day 2. 48 hrs. 11.9 degrees reducing. Day 3. 65 hrs. 12.8 degrees. SG 1.038. Day 4. 84 hrs. 10 degrees. SG 1.034. Day 5. 112 hours. 9.9 degrees. SG 1.030, adjusted thermomstat to allow temp to come back up. Smell and taste is sweet malt and background hops, no off aromas, sulphur etc. Day 6. SG 1.020. 11 degrees. Closed blow off valve. Day 7. SG Not taken 10.8 degrees. Pressure 140kpa. Day 8. SG 1.014. 11 degrees. Pressure 140kpa.
