2308 Munich Lager yeast
Yeast starter made from smacking the pack, leaving for 2 hours, then adding this to 40 g LDME boiled in 400 mL water (allowed to cool), then left overnight while the brew no-chilled.
Mashed in with 14 L @ 77 degrees, mash temp 66 for 1.5 hours. Added 1.7L boiling water @ mash out, then continuous sparged with ~15 L @ 77 degrees; boil volume ~24 L. No chill overnight, then transferred to fermenter, 22 L topped to 23 L, pitched about 3/4 of the yest starter. OG 1.058. The remaining 1/4 of the starter will be topped up and used in my next brew.
