Thanks

You chilled the wort before adding the yeast right. How much top off water did you actually use. Looks like 3.5 gallons?

I should note that the slide show also includes documentation of my 1st to 2nd ferment transfer that takes place 10 days after brew day.

I would say even more than 3.5 gal... is that bad? I started with only 1.5 or 2 gals in my wort, and of course some of that boiled off...

No, sorry to confuse. That is the gravity taken between 1st and 2nd ferments. I'd say the temp was in the mid 70s.

I realize I'm going to be more OCD if I'm going to keep up with this hobby!

ok, had me scared there, if that was OG, even if the sample was 80+ degrees, you would have a 1% beer... the ultimate session beer...

Nice camera you go there. Great pictures. What was the temp before pitching. Didn't look like much ice in there, or was that pic out of sequence showing the ice melted and water drained after chilling?
