The yeast apparently had not fully activated by the time the wort was cooled and ready to be transferred to the fermenter.  We added it to a small amount of wort to aid in activation.


120 min at 158 deg
Ramp up to 168 deg


Had a boil-over (out first) at the beginning of the boil.  I think in the future it could be avoided simply by turning the fan on.
