Checking back in. All went very well on brew day with some things to NOTE for anyone trying this recipe.
-When the instructions say "6 gallon batch size - This recipe has been calculated to produce 6 gallons to accommodate wort losses due to the ridiculous amount of hops" They mean you are to finish with 6 gallons in the fermentor. I goofed this up and ended up at 1.086 OG at 5 gallons (instead of 1.07 at 6 gallons).
- The Hopshot dissolved... to a degree... I see tiny oil like blobs of Hopshot swimming around in my fermentor, undissolved. Next time will use vodka as a solvent to dissolve the Hopshots before entry.
The kit says 6 weeks. The Voss yeast is destroying this at 90F I think I'm going to move to the secondary sooner than I thought. The recipe calls for half of the hops to be added 4 days before transfer. I suppose that even though I'm days in, with activity slowing, that is going to be sooner than a midway point of 1.5 weeks.
