Well I finished work at lunchtime, had a quick sandwich then @1-30pm started getting my equipment ready to do a brew. 1 gallon/ 5 litres 660g Maris Otter 330g Irish Pilsner Malt mash @ 66°C for 75 mins 3.5g First gold @ start of boil 6g First Gold @ 15 mins from end of boil. Czech Pilsner lager yeast I put the lager yeast in a cup lukewarm water with a tsp of sugar, to start it off ready for later. I weighed my grains out and measured 4 litres of water into my pot. Then I started heating water and when it got to 75°C I added the grain and stirred it well to make sure there were no lumps, checked the temp again just over 62°C so I warmed it back up to 66°C and then gave a final stir and then I wrapped my baby up, first in bubble wrap then into a coolbag and then wrapped a blanket round it and covered it with my coat. Its mashing now so I thought I would start up thread whilst I'm waiting, I'm gonna go give it a stir soon and then get some water warming to 85°C ready for a dunk sparge. I've got my daughter taking pics for me but she is already moaning about the smell and that's just doing the mash!
