The Grist and 5g Gypsum:
I’m trying to guide my time with a Google Calender Timetable:
Mashed in 1 degree lower than I wanted, Grain was 16c, Strike should have been 75c… I lost a degree somewhere, so if anyones seen one its mine:
Calibrated Boiler = No more Jugging my liquor into the Tun (Even though I did this time just to check my scale):
Tucked up for 90mins:
Lots of Lovely Fuggles:
FWH in with 1st batch of Sparged wort:
Mash Paddle and floaters:
Hot Break, the 38L stock pot has just the right amount of head space for it to boil pretty much without watching it:
Bramling Cross Hops going in @ 15mins:
Saaz Hops going in at 0mins for 10min steep:
Just a point or two high, 1042/44:
Dry Sprinkled Nottingham Yeast:

Not a bad brewday, the wort tastes good enough to drink as it is πŸ™‚

38 Litre stock pot! That’s huge! As well as paddle envy I now have stock pot envy.

What did you use to calibrate the inside? I scratched mine using a drill bit but it’s quite hard to see.

I’ve got a Dremel type thing I used to grind the marks in, I weighed 1Kg of water on the digital scales in a jug so I knew how accurate the jug was, then i filled up about the first 10 litres 1 litre at a time each time marking the position, then I filled up 5 litres at a time for the next marks. I then measured between the 5L marks and split it into 5 equal divisions, it worked out about 1cm to 1 litre. *making sure my vessel is level in both directions before starting* πŸ™‚
