Galaxy unavailable, swapped out with Vic Secret. Measured OG with hydrometer and refractometer. Both came out at exactly 1.058. Nailed it. Did about a 20 minute hop stand8/5 dry hopped 1oz citra1oz Vic Secret 8/13 kegged. 1.008 FG6.7% abv
Went with magnum for bittering, centennial and citra. Scaled down the grain bill to 10 lbs 2 row for less volume in m and b. Hit my numbers and ended up with about 4.8G7/11 kegged at 48F. Was cloudy. Didn’t fine. Will fine in keg7/13 beer is clearing up!! Still needs conditioning
See hand written notes. Used more strike and sparge water. First brew with cereal killer, got much better efficiency. Had to add about .5 gallon water to reduce gravity from 1.070 to 1.060. *** not using enough sparge water. M&B instructions produce about 5-5.5g pre-boil, this recipe rated for 7g pre-boil!!!! Need to adjust accordingly. Used Amarillo instead of citra. Will dry hop both cascade and Amarillo 5.2 gallons into fermenter 5/31 dry hopped ~1.7 oz cascade/Amarillo 6/4 FG 1.011. ...
First brew on MB. Need mor strike and sparge water next time. Need a hop spider. See hand written notes.
did a half quart sparge at 168F over grains while straining.Had two different SG readings:1.062,1.058. First was taken at end of boil, second was taken after cooling and cold break from top of wort. Go with 1.060 as OG1/3;1/4 slowly increased temp to 70F.
