Mashed 20 min at 105 F, followed by 40 min at 152 F. Pinch of Irish Moss added at 10 min remaining on boil. Lower than predicted gravity, but well within the margin for a brown ale (predictions made using brewgr). Racked roughly 14 cups of wort into the carboy before trub clogged the racking cane. 2 cups bottled water added to fermenter to reach 1 gal total fermentation volume. 1 tsp dry Safale-05 yeast used (fermenting only 1 gal total volume).
Measurements taken at 1 gal total volume:
pH = 5.0~5.1
O.G. = 1.044.
For the next brew session, consider scaling up to 1.5 gal batch (2.5 gal boil) to allow for boiling losses and trub volume. O.G. probably lower due to equipment limitations. Mash and sparge performed using large muslin bag, likely resulting in lower than anticipated efficiency owing to temperature gradations within the mash.
Note: Willamette hops have a very pleasant aroma. Consider adding a small amount at 15min or at flameout.
