I brewed my first AG last Sunday. It was a simple Hefe, 6lbs of german pilsner and 6lbs of german wheat malt.
The whole mash and sparge went very well. Mashed at 154 only lost 1degree over the hour, sparged at 170 for 10 minutes.
From the first runnings I attempted with my wine thief to get sample. Only got a small amount as there was only 3 gallons. I then waited till I had my full seven gallons after sparging. My reading was 1.060 temp of wort was 134 so adjusted OG was 1.075 it was supposed to be 1.049.
I put the sample in the fridge to cool it off, when the temp dropped to 90 the OG was 1.070 when the temp dropped to 78 the OG was 1.074 which doesnt make sense to me cause this changes the OG from the original. Any ideas ??
I forgot to take a reading post boil.
