Forgot to add the corn sugar to the boil, so I boiled 20 oz of water and mixed in corn sugar. With yeast and all its 6 gallons. Lots of hop trub is a bummer and my yeast starter looked very clumpy, so hopefully yeast health is okay.
added 3 grams of CaSO4 in 8.82 total gallons of Boston Tap Water to up SO4 for SO4/Cl ratio of ~1.5. Calcium ends up bringing residual alkalinity to 37, may be too high for pils, but whatevsMash went backwards - overshot and hit 154, left to cool to 146 over 1 hr. OG spot on, as was final volume - keep same equipment profile and do 1.25 mash thickness. still 72-60 F in carboy next day, fermentation took right off nigh before.
