Third Batch of Big Ed's
Last week I got supplies for two more batches. Since I bottled the Oct 12 Batch, a fermentation tank was available for new batch. The Oct 18 batch was also the last batch with the Challenger hops. The closest thing that they had in stock was Cascade. So these next two will not be quite so "hopped up".

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 Cascade Hops (7.4%) Boiling
0.5 ounce of Glacier Hops (5.3%) Finishing
Wyeast 1028 London Ale Yeast

Specific Gravity: 1.056

Update Nov 1: Specific Gravity 1.022. Racked the wort, added .5 ounce of Glacier Hops.

Update Nov 9: Specific Gravity 1.017. Added 1.5 quarts of gyle and put this in the bottle.

Update Nov 16: First Sample - Very nicely done. Not too much head. Could have done 2 quarts of gyle. Very similar to the last batch.

Update Jan 11: This was a very nice batch. Slightly under carbonated.
