Final Review

Molasses is cool, but I don't like working with it.

Notes From March 8, 2015 (Brewing)

Gravity Reading: 1.065

I don't think that I liked using Molasses. It's protein-ful. It was hard to pour and didn't mix well.
I love brown sugar and I think will continue to use that. Had a couple of boil overs.

Oh, I sparged with 6 instead of 5 gals of water which was a lot. It was awesome though because I was able to get more than 5 gals in fermenter. Probably more like 6. There was a lot of foam when I measured and pitched, so I'm not sure. Excited!
