Well today did not start off how I planned. I took the day off work to get started early on my brew. Then as I was about to get started my plans got totally ruined. The fuel pump went out on my car so I did not get sarted till late. I guess it is ok though because I did get to brew my Ipswich Oatmeal Stout just finished though at 12.45am, bummer. But The beer turned out ok OG 1.071. Got to use my new diffusion stone and pithed my first starter made with a mixing plate (the yeast grew like madmen!) I am sure that the lag time will be minimal. Any way hope it turns out better than my car!
