The hard one was the mash temperature eyeball
Well that poll is silly. Sorry about that.
Interesting to hear everyone's thoughts; I hope to be an old brewer some day that can brew from practice with my experienced squinting eyeball.
Well the brew started this all off - me trying to convert Dennys Noti Brown recipie in the wiki to my own system - came out fantastic.
I decided to relax, and just brew to the gist of the Noti - I used some homegrown Columbus for the Galena, then threw in some unknown homegrown that remind me of Chinook for a late steep, used Dennys yeast...man, it has really aged into a very nice American Brown. I call it Not Noti.
I am OK with that.
