No brewing today, but I did take time to rack the Simcoe IPA from primary to secondary. We were a little short on volume going into the secondary because the huge amount of hops we used in the boil soaked up a lot of the wort. Gravity was good, though, at 1.014, which is a significant drop from the original gravity of 1.063. After a week in the secondary, at least half the batch can be kegged and dry-hopped. The yeast was stored in 2 litre flasks for re-pitching in a week or two. The yeast has been pitched three times so far, so it’s half way through its lifespan.
