John's Notes

I used a single decoction (122 to 153) for the mash, everything else was normal.

After my 3 hour boil, I ended up with maybe 3 gal. of 1.150 wort. Too high for my hydrometer to read.

I watered down the wort to 1.042.

The water was all R/O and the yeast was Wyeast Scottish Ale for three days, and then 1.056 on top of it.

The beer is one month old.
