Batch 96: IPA

I was going for a dank west-coast-style DIPA, but ran into a stuck sparge, tried to re-filter the first 3 gallons of fresh wort after fixing things, and ended up drawing way more wort than I had originally intended (~9 gal), and the beer ended up far lower gravity than I had planned. Welp. Hopefully will make beer. Based roughly on Batch 73.

0.5oz FF – 45, 40, 30, 25, 20, 15, 10, 5
1oz FF – flameout, 180°
0.5oz Centennial – 5, flameout

(1) package Burton Salts (for 5gal batch) added to mash
(1) tsp Gypsum added to mash

Mashed for 30 minutes at ~125°, for ~30 minutes ~140°, for ~30 minutes at ~150° (mash in was waaaay too cold, and I spent the next 60 minutes trying to make up for it with boiling water additions and double-checking my thermometers).

Chilled close to 60°, split between two carboys and pitched yeast. Woohoo!
