Brewed a batch on 7/21. Very simple to do.
Did a little over 4 gallons in the boil. Got temp to 170, cut the heat, added all ingredients and mixed together. Cut heat back and brought to 170 again for 15 minutes, stirring regularly.
Rehydrated my yeast before pitching.
Attached a picture of carboy directly after pitching. Bright orange. OG was 1.078.
Fermentation started w/in hours, and was solid for a few days. After two weeks, all action was over. Got it down to about 1.022. Also just keeping it in primary.
It is now starting to clear up. Will probably bottle in another 10 days or so. Will try to post an updated photo later.
