Double batch brew day. The next 5 or 6 beers are to be served at Shannon's graduation party June 13.
A couple problems on brew day (mill, mash tun temperature probe):
1. The Northern Brewer mill that I bought to replace the barley crusher is not very good. I had to keep playing with the gap to get it crush. That will be going up on eBay. I'm going to purchase a Monster Mill and hopefully that will resolve my ongoing mill issues.
2. The temperature probe on my mash tun has been finicky. It was giving all kinds of strange readings on brew day the last few brew days. I ordered a new probe and sent the other back for repair. I should have a spare anyway.
Here are the beers brewed:
Berliner weisse was 50%pils, 40% wheat, 10% flaked barley.
Mash hop - 15 minute boil

Then split 1L starter of Wyeast German Ale into each.

4% special roast
5% pale chocolate
