Im have some issues with a new system of mine>
I currently use a 10Gal mega pot with false bottom for my mash tun. this mash tun is directly heated with a burner. I use a pump for recirculation. I haven't been able to reach anything above 70%. I just brewed a stout today and got 66% hitting my gravity but below volume, suppose to be 1.059 with 5.50 gallons, but got 1.060 @ 4.75gal.
Also, when I recirculate to maintain mash temps or for steps should i mix the mash, i assume yes, right?
thanks for any input
