Default First AG Batch started!

Nailed the protien rest temps (122), held perfectly for the req time. Sacc rest was a little high, I was shooting for 150 but ended up 160 for about 15 or so mins before I could cool it off enough. Heating up mash out water now.

Nicely done. Mash temps being high for a short time shouldn't hurt I don't think, so long as you don't go over about 168 and start extracting tannins from the husks... so you're golden, nicely done. Let us know how your efficiency comes out!

I'll spare you the gory details, but needless to say it was a disaster! My wort ended up all over the porch. Right before I was going to take my OG, it tipped. It would have been nice to take that reading so I could at least see how my process was doing. I will however, make a slight adjustment to my equipment setup. (mental note to self, need a better foundation). Lesson learned, darn gravity will get you every time. I'll try again next weekend, anybody know how long I can keep my starter active? I guess I could always start another one on Wednesday.

I too had issue on my first AG brew day. And like you it was on Saturday. I didn't lose my wort like you did, and in your beer's honor I shall hoist one in his memory.
