11 Gallons of APA

18 pounds of Maris Otter
1 pound of Carastan

.8 oz Chinook at 60
.8 oz Cascade at 30
2 oz Cascade at 15

Fermenting at 67 with S-05

Brew day had a lot of misadventures. Worthless thermometers, bent shaft on my mill......amazing it turned out! Hit 1045 for an OG which put me at 70% efficiency, about par for when I batch sparge. The wort was a bit cloudy going in, its bubbling away like crazy this morning.
