General Information
Method: Partial Mash

Mashed specialty grains ~158F for 60 minutes in butter muslin sack, sparged with near boiling water. Final volume ~1 gal. Higher than expected based on 1.25 qt/lb ratio.

Comments

Notes to self:

1. Glass top ranges suck for heating large volumes.

2. Use less water volume to form the wort and cool in an iced water sink to more appropriate transfer temperature.

3. Autosiphons are nice, but not at all heat resistant.

4. Good job with making the US-05 starter. You did this right.

5. Pitched yeast at 80F... too high.
