    Mash temp of 151 which is spot on for this beer. To get that mash temp I needed a strike temp of 168.

    Batch sparge #1 with my newly made mash paddle. I shoot for a trike temp of 170-180 degrees for both sparges. I let each one rest for 10 min open, stir and go another 10 min.

    Wort chiller in at 20 min. Normally, I do this at 5 but I left this outside for a long time so wanted to make sure it was sanitized.
