    Brew day went really well. Collected 1 gallon of the first running and boiled down to a syrup. I added the syrup into the boil during the last 20 minutes. I nailed the OG at 1.115. I pitched a 2 l starter and this beer is fermenting happily at about 65*

    Drop the temps 5 or more degrees, that yeast likes to spit out smokey esters at cool temps, I am planning on fermenting mine at mid 50s
