I thought I would start my own "Brew Day" Thread because, for the very first time, I have managed to complete an AG brew with no real disasters and only the one mishap ... ... which was to fill my left shoe with water when rinsing out the Mash Tun! Today's brew (19/16) was a Fulstows AG Northfield IPA. I didn't quite hit Fulstows OG of 1.046 (* see PPS) but consider the 1.042 I did achieve to be fairly good, considering that it was a cold day and the mash would have cooled rapidly. The new coil cooler worked well and dropped the wort temperature relatively quickly; but I may add another two "coils" for the summer when the ambient temperature and the tap water are warmer. I rehydrated the yeast with a spoonful of dark sugar, pitched it at 21 degrees and the FV it is now residing in my fridge at 20 degrees celsius. An enjoyable day despite the cold. PS I had to move the Marsh Mild, that was carbonating in the fridge, to the garage shelves after only 8 days. Proof enough that I need another Brew Fridge; but no-one in this house seems to agree with me! :whistle: :whistle: PPS Just re-read the instructions with my specs on (don't wear them when there's steam about) and I did better than I thought! The OG target was 1.0445 and not the 1.046 that I originally thought ... ... so my OG of 1.042 was (by my standards) a roaring success!
