Taste Notes

Notes

Added 8 oz choco nibs to secondary fermenter for 3 weeks did this on 11/21/12 added 25 ml hazlenut flavor at bottling (keg) did this on 12/10/12 (trying to have beer ready for 12/29 nancy's cocktail party with Brooke and Rich) Prior to brew I heated 9 gallons of tap water to 150 degrees and let sit for a long time to eliminate chlorine. No chloramine added to RI tap water per Web site. Goddamn digital thermometer malfunction again Best I can tell mash water was 165 when poured, using two backup mercury thermomenters that did not agree. After mash in temp fell to 148 and I added about a gallon of boiling water to bring the temp up to about 154 degrees, then started 45 minute timer. Grains spent an additional 10-15 minutes at 148 or so???!!!! REduced sparge water to 3.5 gallons at about 168 degrees did a dingle sparge step with 3.5 gallons since beersmith calculated 1st sparge step as only .1 gallons? ended up with about 7.8 gallons after sparge, so boiled til down to about 6.5 gallons for pre-boil
