Sea buckthorn:

- pitched into bottom of fermenter, unbagged

Brew: 2018-06-30
Start: 19.35
Started with hot water from tap. 21.5L @ 50C
Started heating: 19.42
Reached 74C: 19.53
Fucking did it again. Left the heater on, mashed in at 74C. Fuuuck.
Mash start: 20.12, basically settled on 72C. Dropped to 67C in 20 mins.
Not sure why Brewster keeps overshooting the set temp. Keep it down on 200W or so.
Mash end: 21.15
15L at end of mash, sparging with 75C water @1L/minute
Forgot to mash out, but sparge water is hot.
Started boil with sparge. Sparge ended 21.30, temp 79C. Added heat stick and circulation.
Pitched swollen yeast pack into starter: 21.35
Stopped heat stick and circulation at 98C
Boil gravity: 1.060
Boil, first hops: 21.46
Big hot break, almost overflowed at 2500W. Lowered to 1600W
Boil end: 22.45
Cooled to 27C, pitched in fermenter: 23:40
FG: 1.052 ?? How did it drop from boil gravity?? Efficiency: 60%
About 27L in the bucket. Pump worked.
Finished cleaning: 00.26 (10 hours for 2 beers)
jokkon beer time: 5 hr

Fermentation was between 22C and 25C, mostly at 23C. Summer…
Strong fermentation started after 12 hours, lasted 72 hours. Bubbled 9 days total, then stopped.
Beer level at ~26.5L after fermentation. Priming sugar based on 24.5L.
Priming assumption: 2.5 vols/24.5L/24C == 170g table sugar

FG: 1.011 (5.4% ABV)
Odd that it's lower than expected, considering the high mash-in temp.

Bottle: 2018-07-14
Almost exactly 24L made it to bottling bucket. Havtorn was a bitch, should have bagged it
Havtorn got stuck in autosiphon and caused many bubbles in the siphon for the last 10L.
Some got sucked into bottling bucket, but none in the bottles.
Bottled 54x 33cl, 5x 750ml, 3x 500: 23.232 L in glass
