Mash temp right at 155. Held at temp for 90 minutes with heated jacket. Sparging a bit hot at 178.

Hop substitution needed. The Centennials don't look good, so 100% Tomahawks. Same schedule and IBUs, just different amounts. Tomahawk at 60 minutes = 58 grams.

It doesn't appear anyone really cares about this brew, other than myself, but none-the-less, 20 minutes hop substitution will be 47 grams of Tomahawks.

Got my attention when I saw an 84-1/2 pound grain bill. The 13 ingredient malt list made my head spin trying to figure what the outcome would be. Lots of unfermentable and the highish mash temperature would go against my preference for dryer beers.

Well thanks!

I don't have a working camera (except for the Video and that is a PITA).

Next time I will try to do a photo brew, but for now, just imagine lots of stainless steel in a garage!

I will be laying this one down and adding some oak. The malts are really just roast, chocolate and crystal, in various forms. 21% crystal and roast. I went on the higher end of the mash to get the character it will bring. I too generally mash lower for the drier finish, but I think the alcohol, oak, roast and IBUs should pull this one through. We shall see!

Whirlpooling with whirlflock and 2 ozs in the hop-back. 23.2 brix (1.097ish) I believe I have volume, but will not know until I have it in the conical.

Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale is fine this year!

11lbs of flaked rye may throw off your grain absorption number.
