Kev's first brew. Brewed with Kev & Paul. We came up a little short in fermenter, maybe 9.5-9.75 versus 10 pounds. Used kiddie pool with ice to chill. Gotta get a wort chiller. Used top metal shelving from outdoor table over kettle to sparge.

Didn't make OG estimate, as I spilled a bunch of wort. At day 12 fermentation, transferred to secondary and cold crashed. Waiting a few more days and then will Keg..

Brewed 11/21. SG looked like 1.058 area.. filtered with mesh. Used muslin bags for hops.. English ale yeast pitched from new white labs packaging. kind of a pain to use.. need two hands. Transferred to secondary on 12/6/2015.

Do 4 lbs of grains to about 1.62 gallons of water at strike temp of 159.88. sparge with 2.3 gallons. After 4 days, no bubbles. Got a new packet of same yeast and pitched again. 3 days later, still no bubbles. Took hydrometer reading and it was 1.010 at 70 degrees (adjusted to 1.011-calculated ABV to 4.3%). Fermentation had already happened without me noticing!! Not sure what the extra yeast did?? Put into secondary on 10/18/2015. More grain next time! Bottled on 11/3/2015. FG was 1.009 at 70 degrees.

Wort came out much darker than expected. OG also came in much lower than expected at 1.050, but wort was settled and sat for about 6 hours before OG reading, as I broke hydrometer and had to go buy another. Once reading was taken, yeast was pitched. Did not use sock bag for hops. Do hops added directly to boil cause darker color than if bagged? Corrected OG from 70 degrees to 60 degrees is 1.051. FG taken at 1 week was 1.013. Final Gravity at 3 weeks was 1.013 (calculated to 5% alcohol, 168 calories) - (bottled on 10/10/15).

Original gravity came in at 1.045, lower than the expected 1.050. boil loss was nearly 1 gallon. pre-boil gravity was 1.033. FG came in at 1.004, corrected to 60 degrees was 1.005. which means an 89% attenuation and 5.25% ABV. Nice light color going into bottle. Used candy drops - 1 drop into 12 oz bottle. Brewed 9/5, into secondary on 9/13, bottled on 9/19. Tried it on 10/2, it was still pretty flat. Tried again on 10/10/2015, much better, starting to get more carbonated. Will keep trying it. Carl started tasting pretty good on 10/15/2015. fizz when cap was popped off.. Good carbonation. Nice body and taste. Probably a few more hops needed.
