3/4/2019 - Super cold brew day, but I hit my numbers and got great efficiency. Left the hops and trub in the kettle since I'm planning on saving the yeaast cake. Chilled to 70 degrees and pitched yeast. The pack hadn't swelled a ton, but hopefully the yeast is still active. Date on the pack was 11/2018, so it should still be good. Brought upstairs to ferment a little warmer. SG=1.056
3/28/2019 - Kegged. FG=1.010. Subtle fruity esters with a slight bit of phenolic spicy notes. More malty than I was expecting, but the Ankeny water seems to bring out more malt character in my beers I find.
