Specifics
General Information
Method: All Grain
Comments

Leaf hops from the 2016 Cottage Grove harvest.

Robust ferment at 68F (indicated).

Brewed 5-10-17.  Stuck sparge, probably from draining too fast.  The grains were crushed some time ago, so look for ageing issues.

Good ferment.  Airlock activity at 12 hours, healthy krausen by 20.  Fermented out at a max of 68F, 64-66F for most of it.

2017-05-23 - Transferred to secondary.  Reading 1.013.
