Today’s brew is a double IPA.  10 gallons of beer made with 31.5 pounds of grain.


The mash tun is full


We are using 7 ounces of kettle hops and another six (or more) ounces for hopback and dry hop.


Boil-over was a problem again.  Lesson learned:  add hops slowly.

Again, burners have made the day shorter but the power must be respected (see: boil-over).  10:00am mash-in and 1:45pm boil start are the result.
