mashed @ 152 for 60
used 5.2 ph
boiled hops for 60
15min remaining in the boil I added 1tsp irish moss
cooled down the 70 and pitched wlp011 yeast vail.
I bought the yeast about a mounth prior to this and no i didnt make a starter.
I waited about 60 hours and still didnt see anything so i pitched old faithful ( us05 )
within 6 hours it was going good.
I have a new temp controller on my fermenting chamber and an exterior thermometer to read to keep an eye on it.
I kept lowering the temp till the exterior thermometer read 62 which after finding out later was really about 54-57
I shoud have trusted the controller. I fermented it for 8 days till the bubbles stoped and did a d-rest for 24 hours @ 68
Then cold crashed it @40 for 2 weeks. Kegged and carbed it 3 days ago and here we are....
I hope i didnt leave anything out
Can't see anything in that which would give you a super coffee flavour, unless the shop messed up and gave you roasted barley instead of special roast... could actually be the case
Don't worry though, just pour yourself a cuppa each morning before you go to work... should be gone in no time
