that was the OG in the fermenter, so post-boil.
Fermentation was vigorous this AM when I awoke. I used WLP500 Trappist Ale as it lends some spice notes that should be good with this brew. It's a real chewer, in past experience, and I made a big ole 2L starter from 275ml of slurry harvested about a month ago. I saved about 100ml of the starter in small brown boston glass jars for future beers. Should be about 165b cells in each jar.
