problems with my mash
for some reason i cant seem to hit my mash temps today, after i doughed in i was at 145, i added boiling water and still cant get up to 153, right now its arounf 149.

my question is what will this change in my final product?

will it still be a good beer?

At 149F I wouldn't say it'd be bad beer. Your just gunna have more fermentable sugar into your wort so if anything it will be a little stronger and less of body. If it drops below 147 then hit it back up. Don't fret.

Edit: Just looked at that recipe. You should be fine. Steeping specialties is a little more forgiving.

Are you doing the extract or all grain version? For the extract version, it won't make any difference as you're only getting flavor from the grains. If AG, Fatt it right. Additionally, low mash temps require longer to work. I do a 90 minute mash for temps below 154.
