People have loved Double Down so its time to brew again. Last time I went low on the first hop addition. This time I’m going to up it a bit and make it a bit more bitter. Also had to modify slightly the yeast as the brew store did not have enough Juice.

The Mash Tun pump was making a ton of noise. Turned out that I lost the washer and there was a good size dent in the blade unit. I found a washer that fit and hammered the dent out best I could. Seemed to fix the problem.
