Smooth brew day. Everything went well. We hit our numbers and gravity came in at 1.056 on my hydrometer, which reads .004 low in my estimation. Collected about 26g in the fermenter. Basement temps are perfect this week for lagering.


A strong bubble in the big Speigel airlock inside of 24 hours. It’s bubbled all week steadily; temps have stayed in the low 50’s.

Final Gravity 1.011

ABV 6%

4 kegs

5g bottles
