I wanted to make a pale ale a little lighter in colour than My Little Dead Pony. Using less hops to reduce the bitterness and also putting fewer in post fermentation because I thought I previously over did it.

Given the failure of the recirculating mash last time, I tried an immersion brew this time.
I took a guess at the initial kettle temp of 86C. I found a problem with my preheat routine. In order to warm up the equipment, in particular the mash tun, I heat the liquor up in the kettle and transfer it to the mash tun and back again to the kettle before adding the grains. What I found was that when the water is returned to the kettle that it is too cold to begin the mash. A further boost to 75C is required before beginning the mash.
- Software Bugs
- brew 40 85 60 => no emitter name @ vessel.js line100
- brewmon.start has hardcoded brewname
- Mash pump clogged. Need to add a filter.
- Need a check valve on kettle input to prevent siphoning back into the mash.
