    Brewed this on January 25th and bottled it last Saturday. It snowed both days. Pretty cool
    coincidence since it doesn't snow a whole lot in this area of North Carolina. I am calling it
    Southern Snow S...

    I just realized what might help me next time: stir during mash. Just read on John Palmer's
    website that you need to stir the mash ever 15-20 minutes. I guess I thought that mash was like
    bbq: if you'r...

    Your process looks good. You could add sugar/honey if you want the extra alcohol, just be aware
    it will dry your beer out, I would say don't do it. There are tons of small variables that can
    be change...

    I wonder why, after three successful batches, I get this. Makes me want to invest in a
    refractometer. That way I could take immediate action. Maybe I should try stirring more, or
    maybe sparging in two...

    I brewed a 2.5 gallon pale ale yesterday and my gravity is pretty low. Beersmith calculated
    1.056, and I ended up with 1.043-45. Should I add some sugar/honey to fermenter? Details:4.5

    This one has been in the bottle for about 10 days. I know it will only get better. Can't wait
    for the rest of the bottles to condition fully.

    I can't wait for this one to be bottle conditioned and ready to enjoy. My last hydrometer
    sample (after 19 days in primary) tasted and smelled really nice. There was a strange
    aftertaste, but I am try...

    I wouldn't sweat it, I sometimes drop the volume too low when boiling too vigorously, not much
    of a difference honestly, perhaps a point or two higher on the gravity is all.thanks. Can't
    wait to brew ...

    your original recipe is for 5.5 gallons. I am doing 2.5 gallon batches. How far do you think I
    will be off if I simply cut your recipe in half?

    Thanks for all the advice. I might just try the aquarium heater sometime. Shouldn't be that
    hard to do it, especially since I am fermenting 2.5 gallon batches. But, I will probably try at
    lower temps ...
