More Big Ed's
Fran had Reagan across town at a Gym Meet this morning. Marissa and Logan were clear until later in the afternoon. That meant I had enough time to fire up the Texflats Brewery this morning! This will be similar to last weeks batch, except I do not have any more Hallertau hops. Replacing that with some Glacier Hops.

7.0 lbs Pale Malt Extract
2 lbs. Ground Weyermann's Carafoam Crystal Malt
6.0 - 7.0 Gallons of Water
1.5 ounces of Challenger Hops (10.1%) Boiling
0.5 ounce of Glacier Hops (5.3%) Finishing
Wyeast 1028 London Ale Yeast

Specific Gravity: 1.052

Update Oct 26: Racked, added .5 ox Glacier Hops. Specific Gravity: 1.025

Update Nov 01: Specific Gravity: 1.017. Before bottling we would like to see a lower specific gravity. But as I need to move production forward, I think that I will bottle this batch, but instead of added two quarts of Gyle for bottling, I will only add one quart.

Update Nov 09: Sampled the first bottle of this batch. Perfect!
