Brew 2013:09 - Milk Stout (2013-12-07)

I brewed a milk/sweet/cream stout using the recipe from Brewing Classic Styles. The only thing I really tweaked was that it called for Black Patent 525L and my shop's Black Patent was 625. However, I read thatCarafa III (525L) is also the same as black patent. So I used that.

The recipe and notes are below:

2013-12-07 Brew Log

Below are my notes. Note that I was also bottling the Brown Ale at the same time. Note that I did NOT have the grains double milled!

I need to figure outwhat is going on with my efficiency numbers. They really do not make sense. I checked the hydrometer and it reads correctly in water. I checked the volume and it is pretty darn close. Also, my boil-off was too low. I need to adjust these different things for next time.

Also, I am worried about the fermenter being so full but Icouldn't get my tubing to work as a blow off so it'll have to do. Hopefully it won't make too much of a mess

2014-01-06 Bottling

Itdidn't seem to need the blow-off. When I went to bottle it, there was krausen on the lid but only in a few spots. I got really lucky! Anyway, below is my bottling notes
