Double The Pleasure! Double the Fun!

Double brew day today! I’m doing a 10 gallon batch where I will boil 10 gallons for an hour, drain half of the wort, and boil the remaining wort for another hour.

It’s going to be a 60-/ Scottish Ale for the lighter bit and a Wee Heavy for the stronger version. I also took the first two gallons off before boiling and refrigerated them. I will boil that down into a syrup and add it to the wee heavy on Saturday. I’m pretty excited to see if this works out. I am always making 10 gallons, so they might as well be a couple of different beers. I got inspired by a Zymrugy article on the subject.

Here is the stats:
