NotesThis is a no boil B.W. based on the Kristen England recipe in Brewing with Wheat. Should be interesting.
Pitched two-week-old lactobacillus packet into 1.9 liters of 1.040 starter wort. No stirplate. Started on kitchen counter, but moved into a cooler, with hot water bottles to keep temp above 80.
Doughed in before coffee, and the water wasn't hot enough. Only hit 122F. Raised to 133 with an infusion, then followed the mash schedule.
Ended up with 1.035, so watered down to 1.030 and raised temp to 160 to pasteurize. Chilled to 95, put into fermenters, and pitched the Lacto. Will add the yeast when temps get down into high 70s.
