Sweet Stout v2.0

I was very happy with this beer last time I brewed it.  This is almost the same recipe with some more crystal malts and a little more Maris Otter.  I plan on splitting this 3 ways.  One gallon straight, 1 gallon with pumpkin spices and 1 gallon onto captain crunch!

6.5 lb Maris Otter

0.5 lb Carafa II
0.5 lb C80
0.5 lb C20
0.25 lb C120
0.25 lb C40
0.5 lb Lactose

0.75 lb Chinook (60 mins)

Mash high at 156F.  2 g CaCl2, 4 g CaSO4, 3 g NaHCO3.  Fermented with Thames Valley yeast around 64F.

9/7/14: Brew day.  Bad crush from the homebrew shop, so OG was low, 1.054.
