Just a question. I don't mash out. Today I did a 90 minute 156* infusion. The runnings got down to 1.0084 give or take. The mash temp never got over 160*f. Did I extract tannin from the husk? I usually stop at 1.010. I hit the target gravity right on and efficiency was the usual 83%
I made an English bitter.
Here is the grain bill if it helps

Carapils 1 lb.
Crush was right on too, Maltmill tm set at factory settings, I run the grain through twice.
