Batch 169, St. Brigid IPA

I made a minor change to the grain bill this time, I left out the chocolate since I want this to be a lighter colored beer. I bumped up the 2-row by a pound and the wheat by half a pound.

10 gallon batch

OG: 1.058 (using 70% efficiency, hit this exactly)
FG: 1.015
IBU: 89.9
SRM: 4.3 (old recipe was 11.9)

24 lbs 2-row
1.5 lb wheat

60 minute mash at 147F. I mashed at 154F last time, I'm going for this to be a little drier.

90 minute boil

1/4 oz each Chinook, Centennial, and Cascade at FWH, 90, 80, 70, 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10, 5, flameout. All hops are whole leaf, makes for a lot of soggy hops to clean up.

Wyeast 1272 from batch 167.

Real smooth brew day, no troubles or problems at all.

Hops all lined up and ready to go.

This is a great controller, keeps temp within 1 degree.
