Recipe Efficiency Setting: 80 %


With sparge water, mash water, additional infusions, vessel losses, top-up
water and evaporation rate recorded in the Water Needed Calculator:

Target Volume (Gal): 7.93
Estimated OG: 1.064 Plato: 15.64


Raw Pre-Boil Targets - only targeted volume/gravity and evaporation
rate taken into account:

Target Volume (Gal): 7.75
Estimated OG: 1.065 Plato: 15.98

Target Volume (Gal): 5.50
Estimated OG: 1.092 Plato: 22.02


Recorded Actuals - Measurement Taken In Kettle:

Recorded Volume (Gal): 5.50
Recorded OG: 1.092 Plato: 22.02


At 100 percent extraction from the maximum mash potential:

Total Points: 111.93
Points From Mash: 99.20
Points From Extract/Sugar: 12.73


With the recipe efficiency setting, you should have achieved:

Total Points: 92.09
Points From Mash: 79.36
Points From Extract/Sugar: 12.73


Actuals achieved were:

Actual Points From Mash: 79.36
Actual Mash System Efficiency: 80


Fermentation Specifics
----------------------

Pitched From: Starter
Amount Pitched: 10 mL
Lag Time: 24.00 hours

Primary Fermenter: Plastic
Primary Type: Closed
Days In Primary: 21
Primary Temperature: 65 degrees F

Secondary Fermenter: Glass
Secondary Type: Closed
Days In Secondary: 21
Secondary Temperature: 65 degrees F

Original Gravity: 1.092 SG 22.02 Plato
Finishing Gravity: 1.012 SG 3.07 Plato




I plan to take 2 quarts of the PRE BOIL wort at 1.055 to use as a starter for this brew. I will rehydrate the S-05 and pitch it into the starter 24 hours prior to pitching into the fermentor. I pitch the entire starter volume into the fermentor.

Ahoy hoy,
I think the technical pilot side of you is starting to influence your brewing. That rap sheet above looks like a freaking pre flight check list for the military with all those entires
What ever happened to a pinch of this, a pinch of that? Oh, the future again rears its ugly head of technology again. Soon, Pol will just run an app off his iphone, and the Monster will brew on its own, and have his beer and slippers waiting in the garage next to a lawn recliner
It was at that point that skynet.....became aware.......
Im going to brew a fire rock pale ale batch this weekend. Just tried it thursday, am sold that its a top 10 in my list. yummy.
Hope the porter turns out, Ill be interested to see how all it goes. Take care rob.

Good quality to have, yes.

I am thinking about doing something different with this recipe, to keep the attenuation high. I am thinking of mashing in at 135F and RAMP mashing up to 150F. This wont take long, but I think it sounds cool, so I want to do it.

Here it is, no second step infusion, just a 15 minute ramp up to sacc. rest

I like doing slow temp ramps...except my arm gets very tired from all the stirring. I feel compelled to stir it frequently to evenly distribute the heat.
