Brewed this braggot yesterday. And OMG! The wort is delicious!
Made a couple of screw-ups, but the result is still awesome. Sure hope fermentation goes well. I may crawl into my nice big new chest freezer and cry if it does not!
Hops Additions. Using Columbus and Cascade, both starting in "C", easy to mix them up and I did. First two additions were Columbus rather than Columbus followed by Cascade, but the wort still tastes great. I think in the future I will start plastic bagging each hops addition separately ahead of time to avoid mix-ups.
Honey weight vs. volume. At least in they way that I am using BrewSmith it does not change volume/OG calculations based upon the volume of honey (this may just be a stupid user error). Honey by default in the BS database is measured by weight not by volume. As a result, the calculated OG was way off. Measured OG was 1.117 -- Wow!
Update: Aha! Just reviewed my recipe and caught a math error. Made a mistake converting honey weight to volume. That accounts for some of the OG difference. Accidentally used about 7.2lbs of honey instead of the originally planned 6. And fermentation has started!
