Brewing the Dubbel

Here are some notes from the day.
  • The brew day didn't start until almost 10
  • Willie came over with 1 lb. of Munich
  • I substituted the Caramunich with American Crystal 40
  • Willie brewed a 1 gallon batch of all oat malt
  • I used pH stabilizer for both mash and sparge
  • I pulled almost 9 gallons of runnings
  • I had to boil for over 2 hours to get the volume I needed
  • I didn't forget any additions, including the rock candy and sugar which I generally forget
  • The OG was 1.082, which is way over recipe and target style
The ferment action started fairly quickly and required a blowoff after 24 hours.  This will go in bottles due to the strength.
