77.0 C water for mash was not hot enough. The mash temp was around 63.9 C. Added a couple of litres of water at around 88.0 C. Mash temp was 66.7 C
After the boil and the wort was at 23.0C, I poured it on the slurry of the Timaroons (which I racked earlier in the day).
Quite dry tasting at kegging.
Tried some of this the evening of kegging and is quite nice.
