Default Day off = 10 gallons of SWMBO Slayer

So with the whole week off (forced for cost savings) I am going to get some brewing done! I decided on 10 gallons of SWMBO slayer AG. The only difference from the recipe is it will be split into two fermenters and one will by Wit Ale Yeast and the other will be Wit Ale 2. Should be interesting to see the difference. Usually I let my water sit for a day before brewing to let the Chlorine evaporate but this is last minute sooo I'm going to boil the water to get it out hopefully.

Oh yeah and a pic -

Wow, this sounds like next week for me. Also being forced to take a week off for cost savings, and I was planning on doing this same recipe.

Yeah I'm in pretty good spirits right now. The water is boiling, I figure give it 20 minutes then cool for the mash! Just drank an Avery Karma for inspiration. I'll keep updating...

Looks like a nice thermometer you have there.

Yes I borrowed it from work but hey they're saving money right? Anyway it's got T-type thermocouples and it's NIST traceable calibrated and seems to be within .1F! I checked it to the temp of boiling water at my altitude and barometer reading and it was right on.

Finished sparging (batch sparge) collected about 12 gallons of wort. Temp only fell to about 154F. The hydrometer sample is still cooling. The boil is started with a nice hot break. Hops are added and I just remembered the other thing I changed. I used Target hops for the 60 min addition because I didn't want to use whole leaf and that is all my LHBS had. It's going very well so far! This is my third AG batch!

Thanks! Got it all cleaned up and two fermenters sitting in the basement. My efficiency was not good, not sure what it is yet as I haven't calculated it but I missed my OG by quite a bit. I think it was supposed to be 1.057 but I ended up with 1.048! Dang it!
