I think I found part of my gravity problem. Digital term reading 25 deg higher than the plain ole temp probe. Need to check batteries or something. Brewed a SMASH last night and only got 60% efficiency. Crap!!!!!

Ok, i have three different batches going for this recipe and used what yeast i had. One has nottingham, another US-05 and the third i didnt have anything but washed us-06 so i pitched it to see what the results would be. The nottingham was a very quick yeast it has been two weeks and my FG is at a stand still. The us-06 is only one week into fermentation havnt checked it yet. The US-05 after a week still has a three inch thick krausen on the top. I have only brewed 12 batched over the past 8 months and have never experienced Krausen hanging around this long. Is this normal for a non big beer? I did not test nor am i really worried. I usually leave my wort ferment for 3-4 weeks minimum in the primary then bottle.

I want to cold crash my wort for a few days just before i bottle is there a recommended temp and time frame i should follow? Also if i cold crash then bottle do i need to then have the bottles in the fridge afterwards since the wort is already chilled?

i made this with us-05. went from 1.047 to 1.007 in 6 days. It has a little lemon taste to it. I put it in a keg an chilled it. it kinda has a witbier taste to it. it's good but i know it's not supposed to taste like that. not sure what went wrong.

Enjoyed a bottle of my new batch last night . made this one at lower temp in a fridge . between 65 and 67 I think instead of the usual 70 or so and it tastes just the same I think .
I am beginning to wonder about my hydrometer since I never get below 1.011 with AG . oh well still great beer .
Going to make another batch and I think I will hop it up a bit with perhaps a ounce of chinook at 10 minutes unless someone has a great idea for a late hop of another variety

Well I have an idea . I am going to up the grain bill and the hops to balance it out I hope . Currently using this :

6 gallon batch
6 Lbs 12.3 oz 2 row
2 lbs 6.7oz corn
9.7 oz rice
.63 willamette 60 minutes
.63 crystal 60 minutes

I am going to up the 2 row to 8 lbs
up the corn to 3 lbs
.75 wilamette at 60 min
.63 crystal at 60 min
1 oz crystal at 10 minutes

So any thoughts on that one ?
Sure would like BierMuncher to chime in on this since I am sure he has played around with this a bit

That's alot of corn. I can't do more then 2 lbs of corn maze. The taste to me is just off. I do up the rice by alot. 1.5 lbs of rice seems to smooth it out. As far as the hops I would of tried something other then crystal if your going to go with that much. I did it with cascade and it came out pretty good. I think the original recipe is the best even after toying around with the recipe. That my 2 cents.

I agree with Shadows69. I would make the corn 2 lbs and up the rice to a full 1 lb. If you have any 6 row you could use that in place of increasing the 2 row. A blend of 2 row and 6 row is nice for this recipe when you increase the adjuncts of corn and rice.
