Mismeasured malt. Should be 16 lbs, and lower bitterness. I upped the bittering addition when I realized I had too much malt. This was going to be a Best Bitter, not an ESB. Anyway, mashed a little low, at 149. O.G. 1.051. Pitched 1098 slurry (200 ml each carboy). O2 1 minute / 1lpm.

Into the keg at F.G. 1.014. Didn't seem to flocculate as well as the fist pitch of this yeast. Also the F.G. was a little higher than I expected.
