This is just a friendly reminder to fellow brewers to write down what you brew.
Even if it's just a quick note of how many lbs of extract and what hops.
Better if you write down what temp you steep at, fermentation temp, and exactly what OG you start with.
Best, use some software to track your stuff.
I'm writing this because my brew log, a three ring binder, got some water spilled on it and I was letting it dry out when I brewed. I didn't write down the last three batches I've made, and guess what?
The batch I just cracked open might possibly be the best beer I've made.
Do I have any idea what's in it? No. But it is delicious.
I do know the general conditions, but I've forgotten what hops I used to bitter with. It will suck to be me after the last bottle.
