Notes

Mash 150 for 60
Mash out 168 for 10

Pitch at 67 and raise to 68 after 24
When done fermenting drop (once bubbling slows greatly check gravity every other day and look for no further drop) to 40F for 2 days

harvest yeast
dry hop all dry hops under high CO2 flow
at day 3 of dry hopping do dtest every 2 days till clean
cold crash to 35 and rack to keg when cone drop is clean

Brewday notes:
9/23/21 Normal 3V brewday
wort pitched at 2:30pm
cooling system was a bit off. overcooled to 60F. set computer at 66F
9/24/21 no bubbling at 9am
raised to 67F
at noon finally very slow bubbling
by 9pm slow steady
9/25/21 steady bubbling but not ferocious bubbling i would expect. yeast was in 7-8% beer for a few weeks so i should have done a starter.
9/26/21 still steady bubbling
9/29/21 starting to slow ~3 sec
9/30/21 ~4 sec
10/2/21 ~5 sec
10/7/21 ~9 sec
10/16/21 ~9 sec
10/17 no bubbling. FG 1.028
10/18/21 ~22 sec
10/19/21 ~24 sec
10/22/21 ~48 sec. FG 1.026
DTEST cold: clean warm: clean :). cold crash to 40F
10/25/21 dropped cone. not much yeast at all. dry hopped all 8oz of citra and idaho 7
10/28/21 dropped the cone
10/30/21 dropped cone – still a lot
10/31/21 still more hope debris when cone dropped
11/2/21 dropped cone and racked to keg
11/4/21 put on draft

a really nice beer. clean with nice hop character. this process seems to work well!!!
