I mashed my last saison at 156 and 3711 still took it to 1.004.

I'm usually pretty methodical when brewing so I was just thinking of reasons why I might not get full attenuation.

According to my notes my mash temp was between 66-68c, which is apparently 150.8-154.4 fahrenheit.

I used my STC-1000 for the mash as well as for fermentation control, and it is calibrated against ice water and 2 different glass thermometers (themselves calibrated against ice water and boiling water). I only use the STC for the mash because it's easier to read from the digital display than the glass thermometers.

Thinking about it the reduction in efficiency is probably because I didn't squeeze the bag out as much as usual (this was a small batch BIAB).

Anyway, time will tell. The temperature was reading 23.8c this morning and the room smelled distinctly beer-y so we'll see.

Seems to be a point or so down.

I'm away for work all week as usual, so won't get to check it till Friday.

All of us that use that yeast often knew it wasn't done at 1.012.

1.002 is very normal for 3711. Enjoy your brew....
