Started at 5AM. Yeast pitched around 9AM. Clean up pretty much done by 9:30. My pre-boil volume was high and the gravity low. I didn't buy enough cluster hops, so I ended up adding in the Magnum. I ended up adding some sugar to get the wort up almost to plan. OG ended up a little low at 1.049, but that's ok. Took yeast straight from Hand Bock-sket, which I had kegged earlier today. Yeast pitch was at 52 degrees, which is pretty good.4/25/2021 8:19:17 AM3245#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=110#commentshttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icohttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icoComment: http://www.sheppybrew.com/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=75#comment3244Got an extra half gallon for Franken-beer. 4/25/2021 5:07:17 AM3244#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=75#commentshttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icohttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icoComment: http://www.sheppybrew.com/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=174#comment3243Killed the keg right after that comparison pint.
