Danstar Nottingham yeast
Mashed in with 77°C water, resulting in a 68-69°C mash. Super stuck sparge, despite raising the liquor temp up to around 80°C, then ended up doing a batch sparge by scooping the thin part of the mash into a sieve on top of the fermenter. So there’ll be a lot of flour that made it through on this one. OG 1.050
