This stupid little pig. The brew day was not as successful as the last.
I guess I don't know what happened. It's not disasterous or anything...just lower than I would have expected after hitting 82% the Saturday before.
The good news? The White Labs yeast WLP300 (German Hefeweizen) took off like mad the day after brewing. By the evening, I had to construct my first blowoff tube. I'll get pictures up soon.
A blowoff tube for a 1.044 OG? I guess, but maybe my gravity was actually higher than I read.
