Notes


Created with BeerSmith

So I'm working on today's beer, a 1060 Irish Red, and I notice the bucket of Briess 2-Row seems a bit light. I pick up the bucket of Belgian Pils and it's still full.

DOH!!!!!

Yes, I have to monkey with my OG (the computer is set for 5.0 gallons, but I really end up with 5.5 in the primary), but I believe I was pretty close.
