I brewed this tasty recipe last night as my first BIAB run on my new kettle. The wort color and hop aroma are both really enticing! I had a few minor issues due to the new equipment (overestimated boil-off, slightly undershot efficiency), so I'm expecting a moderately lighter bodied beer out of this. Still, I was close enough that I'm expecting good things in a few weeks.
The only real mistake I made was forgetting to tape my fermentation chamber's temp probe to the side of the bottle when I placed it in there. I set the thermostat for 63ºF, but since the probe was resting near the back of the chamber (where the cooling plate is), the beer spent it's first 10 hours or so of fermentation at 75º+. I've corrected this now and it is falling back down to 62º but extremely active fermentation is already well underway. I'm hoping the S-04 doesn't get too grumpy with me and produce to much estery off flavors.
Thanks for the great recipe, Yooper. I'm looking forward to this one.
