4/7/2014 - Mash was a fiasco but it looks like things will be ok. Pre and post boil gravities are in line. Pitched entire starter. Pulled off about 800ml to do a forced fermentation. Efficiency looks good given though the mash efficiency didn't look very promising (1.076 vs 1.082, about 92%). I think a 50% decoction is on the high side, a lot of lost enzymes. Pitched yeast at 62F. 4/11/2014 - Still fermenting nicely, blowoff no longer required. Forced ferment is also still active. 4/14/2014 - Forced ferment gravity 1.011 by hydrometer, Refractometer 1.011, Sean Terrill 1.012 4/15/2014 - Tasted forced ferment, robust clove presence :)
