Fire up the Brewing Machine!!
Today seemed like a good day to fire up the brewery. That said, I had a bit of trouble getting my grains at the right temps. That also accounts for the lowered specific gravity. The color of this batch is a bit lighter than recent batches.

7.0 lbs Pale Malt Extract
2 lbs. Ground Weyermann's Carafoam Crystal Malt
6.0 - 7.0 Gallons of Water
2.0 ounces of Cascade Hops (7.4%) Boiling
0.5 ounce of Glacier Hops (5.3%) Finishing
Wyeast 1028 London Ale Yeast

Specific Gravity: 1.045

Update Nov 30: Specific Gravity: 1.013 (Hmmm, that was fast! Anyway, racked this and added a half ounce of Glacier hops).

Update Dec 7: Specific Gravity 1.011 - Added 2 quarts of gyle, and put in the bottle.

Update Jan 11: Color is lighter than the previous batches. I am not sure why. This is a very drinkable batch. Carbonation is perfect.
