Did 10 gal of the extract version this time and split it, 5 gal with Notty and 5 with Saflager23. (1st 5 gal batch went too fast).
I also added 1/2 lb of Honey malt, (because I had it around), and 8oz of rice syrup solids in place of 1lb of the DME as I only had 9lb.
Lesson learned for me: Getting 12 gal of wort to boil on my turkey fryer burner is just not happening
, (time to get a new burner). I was only able to get it to about 210°f and that took a lot longer then the 60min boil time, good thing I did late additions of the DME.
Hydro came in at 1.041 and was a bit bitter but I think I'm good as that should mellow out as it ages.
Since this is up to 3374 posts I could not read them all; Anyone use Saflager23 on this? I have seen some good and bad posts on that yeast and was just wondering what to expect.
