 Water Infusion  Mash/Boil  Fermentation
Heated 7.3 gal strike water to 164 and mashed in. Attempting no sparge. Shooting for 153. Started at 158 so stirred a lot and dropped to 156. Checked ph after 10 min - ph was 5.9. Added 1/4 tsp citric acid to mash and lowered ph to 5.3 - 5.5. Mashed For over 50 min and end temp was 51. Final boil volume was 5 gallons an 1.040.

 Water Infusion  Mash/Boil  Fermentation
Heated 3.75 gal of strike water to 169. Added .5 tsp of citric acid. Mash temp at 153 and mash was between 4 and 5. Mashed For hour and 45 min. Mash temp ended at 149. First runnings gravity was 1.080. Collected a little over 2 gallons from first runnings. Maybe 2.25 or so. Less than 2.5. Spare water heated to 185. Soaked for 10 min. Preboil was 1.046. Boiled 60 min. Added .5 ctz and 1 each mosaic and citra at 5 min. 1 oz each citra and mosaic at flameout. 1.5 tsp of yeast nutrient. Pitched at 70. OG 1.056.

 Water Infusion  Mash/Boil  Fermentation
Heated 3.5 gallons to 170. Initial mash was 156. Added .5 tsp of citric acid and 1/2 at Of tap water to lower mash temp to 154. At 30 minutes ph was at about 5.12 and temp was 153. First runnings was right at 2 gallons and 1.080. At just over 30 min boil, gravity was at 1.053 and volume was a bit over 5.5 gal. Boiled just over 1 hour. OG was 1.059 - better efficiency and higher mash temp than last time so hopefully a higher FG and fuller / sweet body like hoped. Need to reset efficiency and boil loss- increase efficiency and put boil loss at 1 per hour.

 Water Infusion  Mash/Boil  Fermentation  Conditioning
First runnings was only 2.5 gallons. Sparged until tun was empty and preboil volume was about 5.75 gallons. Pre boil gravity was 1.063. Clock was broken but somewhere between 30-40 min into boil the gravity was 1.067. OG was 1.076. Volume into fermenter was 3.5. Dry hopped 1 oz simcoe.

 Water Infusion
3 gallons strike water heated to 170. Mash temp started just over 150. Ph at ten min in was 6 . Added .25 tsp citric acid. At 20 min ph was lowered to 5.2 a 5.3. Mashed 90 min. First runnings was just under 2 gallons at sg of 1.075. Heated sparge water to 185, second runnings sg was 1.023. Preboil gravity was 1.040. Adjusted grain absorption to Account for again over sparging. Boil vol was approx 5.75. Mid point of boil gravity was 1.045. Boiled a bit longer than 1hour. Original gravity was 1.047.

 Water Infusion  Mash/Boil
Heated strike water to 170, let rest for a few in mash tun, mashed in and mash temp was about 152. Shooting for 154. Added .5 tsp of citric acid which lowered mash from 5.9 to the 4.9-5 range. First runnings was a bit over 2 gallons. I thought I collected too much sparge water but it was actually closer than I thought. Preboil gravity was 1.042. Boiled for just over an hour, added 1.5 oz of 2.6 AA Hallertaurer and ended up with just over 4 gallons in fermenter. For next brew, change mash tun loss to 0.1 to account for more accurate first runnings. OG was 1.050 so efficiency was a bit lower which will need to be accounted for in the next batch.

 Water Infusion
initial ph was 5.99, added .5 tsp of citric acid and ph dropped to between 5.2 and 5.6. FIrst runnings gravity was 1075' First running volume was just under 2 gallons. stopped sparging when reach 6 gallons. added a bit too much sparge water because infusion info below was incorrect - I set that I wanted 5 gallons in the fermenter instead of 4 gallons. 1 hour boil lost 1 gallon, approximately 1 gallon left in kettle, fermenter volume just at 4 gallons.
