Brew #54: Smoked Porter

October 12, 2013

Target OG 1045. Having rinsed with 7 litres (26 litres in the mash to begin with) OG was showing 1044 in the kettle for 27 litres and last drops coming through the grist were looking at 1017. At this stage there was still good amount of wort in the rinsing bucket. Pick up during the boil is usually around four points. When all the wort was in the kettle the OG was 1043 for 29 litres and efficiency around 88 per cent. Too arsed to liquor down. First time ever I was getting black currant aroma from Bramling Cross.

Never gets old this:
