General Information
Method: All Grain

12/21/2015 - Filled the kettle to the top of the top rivet.  Boil aborted soon after starting to take Drew to the clinic.  Full boil time restarted 3 hours later.  Boil proceeded as normal, though not vigorous enough.  The result is 5.5 gallons into the primary.

12/22/2015 - Fermentation started in less than 20 hours.  Proceeding at 66F.

12/24/2015 - Krausen completely collapsed.  I'll wait a few days to transfer in order to accommodate the Gout Stout.

12/28/2015 - Transferred to secondary for clarification.

1/11/2016 - Kegged.
