Notes

2/24 – Brew day went well and ended about 2 quarts over-volume and 3 points over my OG netting me a brewhouse efficiency of 81.4%. This is the first time I have achieved an efficiency of above 80% on my no-sparge rig, which makes me a happy camper. I opted for a 90 min boil since 43% of my grain bill was pilsner malt. I forgot to start my timer after the boil commenced but am pretty sure my timing for my 2nd hop addition at 20 min was close to on-time.
