Thanks to all for the recent help. I have a copy a Complete Joy ...
but sometimes I'm a little thick.

I racked the brew last night without filtering and topped with .5 gal
preboiled water. The SG was 1.014 it is nice nice brown almost Apple cider
colored. The taste is very light with mild hop after taste. I should have
boiled the buillon hops 8.0 AA for much longer but the short fuggles @ 2.2
did well.

I like all the sparging bag and hop bag suggestions I rememeber reading of
them now, I could have done this if I had tken 2 secs. to plan.

My question is about stirring. I've seen different things from Charlie P.'s
'don't muck around in your wort below 60 degs.' to the recent post of
Oliver suggesting to oxygenate the wort throughly before pitching.

What is the story here? Aren't there little yeasties out there just wainting
to grow up in my beer?
