Kettle scorched some of the wheat extract. Thought I was mixing it well. Will try pre-mixing in 3 gallons next time.
The scorch was minor, and did not seem to add odor or off flavor.
Moved to Secondary 3/24/12.Yielded 9.75 gallons
Tried fermenting at 600F, but it wouldn't take. I had to move it up out of the basement to the kitchen, where we keep the temp at about 64. After a day, it took off pretty well. Highest temp fermenting was about 680F.
I'll set a reminder on my calendar to check it for kegging on April 28th
