BrewBlog: Gout Stout (2015)
General Information
Method: All Grain

Records lost in the Great Data Loss Event of 2016

21 pounds total in the mash.  A secondary mash was conducted with 3 pounds of oats and 4 pounds of Rahr 2-row.  It was brought together cool and raised to 120F (?) for a beta glucanase rest, then to 155F and added to the main mash.  The main mash consisted of 11 pounds of Pearl Fawcett and the specialty grains. 

Fermentation started very quickly at 66F (less than an hour).  The bottling bucket was set up to drip water onto the outside of the primary to keep it cool.  Temperature quickly fell to 54-56F for the duration of primary fermentation.  After the krausen started to recede, the fermenter was moved to the normal room and the temperature increased to 65F.

Transferred to secondary on 1/11/2016.

Transferred to keg for conditioning on 11-22-16.

Bottled from keg on 2016-12-12 using counter-pressure filler.
