Brew Day (8/20/17)
Did not use ph 5.2 stabilizer
hit 150-151 F on mash in @ exactly 12 noon
mashout water was around 203F instead of the 206F Beersmith calculated. At the end of the 10-min mashout, the mash was 163F, so this is lower than instructions said.
Wort cooled to 69F and pitched dry yeast. OG: 1.064
Entire basement smelled like sulfur about two days in! But it faded after a day or so. Airlock still smells that way (kind of like a lager)
Racked to secondary. Tastes great!
FG: 1.009 (ABV 7.2%). Yielded 42 bottles
Tasting (October, 2017)
This has a nice, almost lager taste to it. Pretty good.
