I made my first PM beer last night, 3 gallons of IPA. Everything went pretty well, I think, except I didnt refilter the first runnings (vorlauf?). How important is that step? Also, I didnt do an iodine test to be sure that all the starch was converted. Was that a stupid thing to skip? The OG was 1.068, I was shooting for 1.070.
This was a test run, from here on out I will be going AG. The last two of my wedding day meads will be tying up the secondarys for the next month or so. So I have that time to make/ buy the equipment I need to make the switch.
Any advise greatly apreciated.
