---NOTES------------------------------------
5/1/13 - Made a 1 quart starter with Wyeast 1056
5/2/13 - Stepped up my 1 quart starter with another quart 

- Brewed at Brew Brothers for National Hombrewer's Day.  Added 2 tablets for cholorine, 1 to the mash, and 1 to the boil.  Also added gypsum to the boil.  Brewed with Dan.

- Boiled for an extra 20 minutes (probably not necessary) b/c of a low pre-boil gravity.  Unfortunately I didn't take into account the Dextrose that I hadn't added, so it was probably fine.

- Ended up with only 3 gallons, but the OG was 1.090.  

- Waited till I got home, and added the yeast and starter (.5 gallon), and almost 2 full gallons of distilled water.  Put it in the fermentation chamber with the thermostat set for 61F.
