Notes
5.75 gallons into the fermenter, left about a quart in the kettle and in tubing. 92% mash/lauter efficiency, Brewhouse Efficiency was 88%.
Pitched 830 slurry from Keith Seguine's Schwartzbier. Fermentation kicked off in 13 hours at about 58F. Reduced to 52F after a few hours.
6/1 tested SG at 1.012, raised controller to 56F and will rack to secondary and begin lagering next weekend.

Racked to keg on 6/21 and the intial tasting was wonderful. Floral aroma and very smooth malty flavor. I can't wait for this thing to age. No diacetyl detected at all, no DMS.

Oh sorry. It's in the notes but not obvious... It was a WLP830 German Lager slurry that a buddy of mine got from a brewpub in the area. I can't be sure it's not a house-mutated version of the original strain or not but it fermented hard and clean with no diacytel. I want to do a Pils sooner than later to keep the slurry fresh.

Thanks. I'm taking this keg to a party full of real brewers tonight. I might have to make some more real soon.
