Equipment cleaned with bleach solution and sanitised with Iodophor solution. 26L water heated up for the mash, with the grain bag added at 70°C for 60 minutes. Wort drained, mash sparged with 5L tap water and then put up to boil. Bravo hops added 20 minutes after boilpoint for 40 minutes, forgetting to convert time for the use of the no-chill method. 10 minutes after the end of the boil, the Cascade and Hallertau Mittelfruh hops were added to the pot. The brew was then decanted into the fermentation bucket directly, with the airlock in place. Shortly thereafter the airlock was rigged to prevent air being sucked into the bucket. The following evening Safale US-05 yeast packet added with OG 1.074. Checked 14 days into brew: SG 1.026. Checked 25 days into brew: SG 1.025. Checked 32 days into brew: FG 1.025 = 6.43% ABV. Bottled into Iodophor solution-sanitised 330ml and 500ml bottles primed with 200 grams dextrose.
Yield: 20.8L (57 x 330ml, 4 x 500ml bottles)
