Comments

I missed my target gravity of 1.081.  I got to only 1.076.  I think my water amounts were too much.

I'm notusure if the multi-step mash had anything to do with it either.

Special Procedures

Fermenting:

My basement was too cool.  Brought this uppstairs to ferment at 64, but it was not warm enough.  Tried for 2 weeks, but it was going slowly.  Took it over to a neighbor's house and fermented at 68 and it went a little better.  Let it sit there for 12 days.

Finished out nicely, at 1.006 after primary fermentation.

Fermentation
Primary: 26 days @ 64° F
