In the original recipe I had some changes in the water, but since that's very specific to my area, I removed it for this one. The intention was to just have a water profile appropriate for pale ales, with a balanced sulphate/chloride ratio, because I didn't want the hop bitterness to show up too much. I used a simple mash with one step at around 67ºC. This was a Brew in a Bag mash, so with the total volume of water needed already in the kettle during the mash. No sparge. The boil time was 60 minutes, but the minutes indicated in the hop boil time was increased by 20 minutes. This is just an adjustment I make when using no-chill, in order to take into account the increased amount of IBUs extracted during the slow cooling period. So the first addition was in the beginning of the boil (so instead of 60 minutes, 80 were used for the calculation) and the second one after the boil, into the no-chill container before transfering the hot wort (the same, instead of 0 minutes, 20 were used for the calculation). I used 1.5L of the wort to make a yeast starter. A couple of days later transfered the cooled wort into a fermentation bucket and pitched the yeast. After a couple of weeks dry hopped for 4 days with hop pellets. To transfer the beer for bottling I used a nylon bag to cover the syphon, although this created quite a bit of bubbles in the process. In the end the efficiency was lower than expected. OG was 1.049 and FG 1.011, so around 5% ABV.
