Transferred to secondary on 4-20-2012, bottled on 8-26-2012.  The 3724 yielded 18x750ml, 9x12oz, and 3x500ml.  The 3522 yielded 18x750ml, 9x12oz, 1x500ml.  Both batches carbonated with 5.25oz sucrose.

Comments

Split batch - two 5 gallon batches, one with 3724 and the other with 3522.  Single mash, 2 separate boils.  1oz cascade at FWH, no other additions until yeast nutrient at 2 minutes.  The 3724 also got 5t of diammonium phosphate during chilling.  Mount hood added into the secondary a week before bottling.

Both yeast were taken from previous batches and "proofed" with a 2 liter starter over the previous week.
