Hey Guys, quick question about refractometers...
I used mine for the first time recently and recorded a few results througout the mash that puzzled me a little.
At 45 min, my mash was 19 which I think is around 1.076.
30 min was 17 and 1.068
15 min was 15 and 1.060
0 min was 13 and 1.051
My setup is BIAB, so I took another reading after combining the mash and sparge water (stirred) and it was 14 which is 1.055
Does this sound right? Being new to this, I expected the readings to start low and work their way up as more starch is converted but I guess it's the opposite?
Thanks for any clarification!
