I started at 7.30am and finished about 3pm! Had lunch and breakfast in amongst.
I ended up with OG:1058 so watered down with 1.9L of ASDA Smart Price water in the boiler before collecting in the FV. The collected wort was pretty murky, try as I might I could not get it to run clear, I’m wondering if my short brew lengths of 12 litres are to blame with half the depth of hop-bed filtration in comparison to a 5 Gallon brew.
