BrewBlog: Parallel Brew Brown Porter - All Grain
General Information
Method: All Grain

Recipe is based on 6 gallons in the brewpot after cooling. The expectation is that there will be 5 1/4 to 5 1/2 gallons in fermenter with 1/2 gallon or so of trub left behind.

I pitched the yeast on Satrday the 13th 8 pm. The ferment got off to a slow start as the wort was 58 degrees.

Sunday the 14th broght the wort temp up to 68 degrees and got a good ferment going.

Monday the temp. went up to 74 degrees, had to cool it down. I'm finding out that I'm going to need a better way to control fermentaton temps. Fermentation is still going strong.

Tuesday, temp is 64 drgrees and the ferentation has slowed down but is still going.

Racked to secondary after 8 days. Yeild real close to 5 gallons, sg 1.010 temp. 62 degrees. nice chocolatey coffee flavor.

 Jan 13th racked to corney and force carbonating.

Nice flavor, looking forward to the meeting to taste the final product!
