It took way longer than it should have to do the write up for this beer. I brewed this back in mid-May with Michelle. I thought that I lifted the grain bill from the NHC 2010 Category 17: Sour Ale winner "Zed's Dead Red" by Remi Bonnart, but I must have read it wrong and changed a few things or used what I had on hand (that's what happens when I put off doing the write up for 3 months).

15 May 2011 - Brewed with Michelle. Missed mash temp by a few degrees. Mashed at 152 for 20 minutes. Sparged and collected 6.75 gal of 1.051 wort (Efficiency 75.3%. Boiled for 90 minutes at evaporation rate of 12% and yielded 6.15 gal of 1.056 wort. Chilled to 69 degrees and pitched ECY02 and JP dregs.
30 May 2011 - Gravity 1.040. Should add an attenuative yeast to help finish it out.
31 May 2011 - Pitched smack pack of Wyeast 3711 to help finish primary fermentation. I probably shouldn't have used something so attenuative, but that's all I had on hand.
