wife got me a refractometer and stir plate for xmas. nailed my temps on the mash. beer smith puts my efficiency at 80%. i'm feeling great. my starter looks awesome. i pitch. as i'm washing out the flask i realize i dumped the magnet that stirs the starter. its a stout and tghere is no way im getting it out. might as well leave it in. now i have to wait at least 3 weeks for my next batch. hopefully its feezing for the next 3 weeks.
