Notes

(Ca ppm) 60-65 (Mg ppm) 11 (Na ppm) 22 (Cl ppm) ~65 (SO4 ppm) ~50 Ratio ~1.3 4/6/2022: made 1.6 L yeast starter with 5.1 oz DME. Mash in with: 0.8 g CaCl2, 0.7 g epsom salt, and 3 mL lactic acid. 2nd infusion with: 0.5 g CaCl2, 0.5 g epsom salt. 5 min boil thin decoction step to reach mash out temp. Sparge: 0.5 g CaCl2 and 0.45 g epsom salt per batch 4/8: mash temps of 151.°F/155°F/163°F. 1.055. A little less than 5 gal. 4/9: pitched yeast in early am. Temp is 52°F. 4/11: already to 1.030ish (krausen makes it tough to read). 4/14: 1.024 or so. Give another ~16 hours and then pull to ambient. 4/15: 1.020. Moved to ambient. Letting fermenter slowly increase in temp. 4/16: temp to 63°F. Increased SP to 64°F. 4/17: SP to 65°F. 4/18: 1.013. SP up to 66°F. 4/19: SP to 67°F. 4/21: 1.012. still a tiny bit of activity, but passed diacetyl test and tastes amazing. Nice doughy bready malt (hint of biscuit & toast) with a low floral hop note. And clean. Moved to fridge to cold crash 1 day before kegging with gelatin & campden. 4/22: kegged with gelatin, campden tablet, and clear beer draft system. Burst carbing. Should be ready to transfer into CO2 purge serving keg in 4-5 days.
