The beer was very tasty. I kicked my keg in one week mostly by myself. It scored a 39 in the first round of NHC. I think I will use some kind of fining agent next time as I did have some tannins that made it a little harsher than I would like. I do 6 gallons because that leaves me 5 gallons after kettle and fermenter losses to have a full keg.

FWH= First Wort Hop. It's when you add the first hops to the wort as you drain the mash tun, so that the hops "steep" in the first runnings and stay in there through the draining of the mashtun and throughout the boil.

I did batch sparge. Can't remember the exact ratio, but I usually start with 10 gallons of water total and divide that between mash and sparge. Probably something like 5 and 5.
