The beer during mashing was progressing nicely up until it reached the saccharification step. The starch conversion took an additional 15-20 minutes do to several successful iodine tests, noting the presence of starches.

After starch conversion was complete, the boil went without a hitch and the cool down was enhanced by a DIY wort chiller.

I think this, by dropping the tempature rapidly, will preserve the hop profile and allow the hops to better present their aroma to the pallet.

More to come after fermentation is complete.
