Tales from Diwali

The process was OK but not perfect. Some things to note:

  1. I steeped in a different pot because the 1 gallon was not high enough in the 5 gallon pot. This required me to pour between them when adding extracts which potentially oxidized. Solution: steep with more liquid in the larger pot
  2. Did not prepare the yeast. Solution: Need to bring it out ahead of time.
  3. Did not account for evaporation. This beer is under 2 gallons. Solution: have boiled extra water cooled by the end so we can bring up to 2.5 gallons
  4. Leaking chiller. Solution: tilt outside; build my own; return the one from 5th season
  5. Dry extract made mess. Solution: pour dry into bowl first, then dump in
  6. Did not clear crap from wort before fermenting. Solution: clear crap from wort before fermenting, by slowly decanting, then rinsing the bowl
