All done! Lowes delivered a 7 Cu Ft freezer to my apt at 6 PM. I got 74% Eff, and the wort tastes really nutty. This is going to be delicious. The carboy is currently cycling between 60 and 66F. Last time I used English yeast I got a fruity character, but things should go much better this time.

Super smooth brew day for my first AG. Only know was when the chiller clamp and hose popped off and my shoulder and scalp got sprayed with boiling water. A few hours of pain and its gone away now, no problem. I am going to check the hose every brew day from now on.

11 lbs Maris Otter
10 oz Carafa Special
10 oz Munich 10L
8 oz C120

.5 oz Northern Brewer (60) The real beer uses bullion but LHBS was out; so I checked the comparison chart and chose NB
.5 oz Cascade (30)
.5 oz Fuggles (0)

US-04 yeast. I didnt feel like making a starter this time, I rushed to get ready for brew day this week. I built the tun, bought the freezer, and the ingredients 3 days ago.

Next Up: Belgian IPA?
Primary: none
Secondary 1: none
Secondary 2: none
Bottles: Export Stout, Belgian Wit IPA, Belgian Blonde, Columbus/Simcoe IPA, Nelson/Sorachi Saison, Cinnamon/Orange zest spiced Dunkelweizen
