need to figure out what type of chocolate malt to use, brulosophy used gladfield light chocoloate malt. Regular chocolate malt may be too bitter. Brulosophy suggested Briess chocolate malt as substitute

All Grain | 5.5 Gallon(s) | Robust Porter | 4.9 % ABV
From brulosophy (http://brulosophy.com/2017/07/13/short-shoddy-pt-5-oatmeal-porter/). This was originally brewed with a 20 min mash and 20 min boil at 57% efficiency, yeast pitched at 80 degrees F. Resulted in a great tasting porter. I am going to use this as a base for a shortened brew. The chocolate malt used was Gladfield light chocoloate malt (350L color)

 Water Infusion  Fermentation  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. Kegged 6/5 added gelatin

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 OG 1/3;1/4 slowly increased temp to 70F. Krausen mostly dropped, increased temps caused airlock activity to pick up 1/7 dry hopped 1/11 added gelatin 1/13 kegged 7.1 Bx 1.011 hydrometer at 60F. 6.3?v
