7/23 - Into the primary which previously contained the Cali Common. The old yeast was recovered, but a substantial portion was left in the carboy. That residue is the yeast for this ferment. Initial gravity at 16.4B (1.068). Initial temperature 78F; fan directed at the carboy to blow 67F room air over it to get the temperature down before fermentation takes hold.
7/24 - No signs of fermentation yet. Indicated temperature at 70F, air temperature at 68F.
7/25 - Near blowout, fermentation seems to have taken hold. Indicated temperature 70F, air temperature 68F. Fan still blowing to keep the temperature as low as possible.
7/28 - Krausen has fallen. Gas is still passing through the trap at a rate of 1 glub per second. Indicated temperature 70F, air temperature 67F. Fan turned off.
8/3 - Transfer to secondary.

Mash in with 3.75 gallons at 167F to hit a mash temperature of 152F. Rest for 30 minutes, then pull 5 quarts to decoct. Boil the decoction for 40 minutes and return to the main mash to hit a second rest temperature of 166F. Rest for an additional 30 minutes. Mash out with 3 quarts @boil to high 172F. Stir and drain the tun to recover ~3 gallons. Sparge with an additional 3.5 gallons at 172F.
Add hops according the schedule, adding whilfloc and nutrient with the last hop addition.
