Update on this:
I changed the grainbill to the following:
#22 Pale Malt, Briess
#6 Bonlander Munich, Briess
#1 Caramel 90L, Briess
#.5 Caramel 60L, Briess
#1 Belgian Special B
#1 English Chocolate Malt
#1 Belgian Candi Sugar (Dark)
1 oz Fuggle @ 90min
.5 Fuggle @50min
2 oz E.K. Goldings @ 30min
1 oz Willamette @ 20min
.5 oz Willamette @ 10min
I had a pretty significant gravity shortage though. Should have been a post boil target of 1.159. Instead I got 1.110. Let me outline my process and see if you can spot my error.
2:27pm mashed into 8 gallons of water
Held at 152 degrees until 3:40pm when I started recirculating wort to clear
Drained and added 3 gallons of 155 degree sparge water
By 4:20pm I had collected 8 gallons of wort (Pre-boil gravity of 1.072)
5:30 Boil start (4 hours)
followed hop schedule
Wrapped it up by 10pm. Added the 1728, 1056, and 3522.
My 5 gallon OG was 1.110. I was .049 off.
What did I do wrong?
My solution is to feed the wort dextrose until I hit my target. I'll be pitching the Trappist High Gravity mid way through my feedings.
According to this calculator, http://merrycuss.com/calc/gravityadjustmentextract.html
, I need to add 6.62 lbs of dextrose to achieve my target OG.
Any glaring holes in my brew day or in my plan to fix the beer? (samples taste amazing so far)
