Amount Name Type #
16 lbs Pilsner (2 Row) Bel (2.0 SRM) Grain 1
8 lbs 4.00 oz Wheat, Flaked (1.6 SRM) Grain 2
4.00 oz Lambic Hops [1.5%] - Boil 75 min Hops 3


2-28-15 Brewday Mash Mash Schedule 1. 113 for 20min 2. 136 for 15min 3. Transfer .5 gallons to boil kettle at end of step and heat to 176 degrees 4. 150 for 30min 5. Transfer 1.75 gallons to boil kettle at end of step 6. 162 for 20min 7. 167 for 20min 8. Sparge with 195 degree water onto 2 transfer volumes already in the pot Sparge and transfer to the Strickland Ranch. Temp at transfer was around 150 degrees. Wasn't sure what kind of efficiency to expect with that kind of mash so calculated a conservative 60% but ended up with 83% surprisingly, target was 1.048 and actual ended up a 1.066. So now I can dilute in 5 gallons of spring water and have an extra 5 gallons of beer. One other issue that concerns me is the final temp, despite temps in the low 40s and snow powdering the mountains above the kettle only dropped to 78 degrees by the time I racked off, standard practice is to rack once it has hit 72 degrees, hopefully I'll have some activity in a couple weeks. Also rained that night so not sure how that affects the mircroflora in the air. 3-3-15 Have not yet transfered and diluted the wort, visible signs of ferementation started sometime while at work, krausen exists covers the top of both carboys about 1/4" thick. 3-5-15 Added blow off to carboys after airlock began to leak
