Special Instructions

1.
Treated the water the night before with slaked lime and CaCl.
2.
On brew day add 7.4 gallons of the treated water to the brew kettle and add 6.4 ml of lactic acid.
3.
Heat water to 129?F and add grain (target 124?F) for 20 minutes. Perform decoction by bringing 350 oz of mash to boil in a separate pot and added back to main kettle to mash at 148?F for 50 minutes.
4.
Mash out at 170?F for 10 minutes. Boil for 60 minutes and add hops according to schedule.
5.
Add sugar with 5 minutes left in the boil.
6.
Transfer wort and add O2 for ~ 1 minute. Add yeast from starter to the wort when the temp is in the low 60's.
7.
Ramp up the temperature 1-2? per day from ~64?F to 76?F over the course of the first week.
8.
Rack off of the yeast into a secondary and drop the temperature to 50?F for ~6 weeks until reached 1.014 FG.
9.
Use a ~350ml starter culture of the same Belgian yeast for bottling.
10.
Also, remove beer from refrigeration and let it rise to ambient temperature. For bottling, I am adding 125g of corn sugar boiled in ~1 pint of water for priming and mixing in the yeast from the starter.
