    Last quick update and then I think I'm done. My hydrometer is off. I set it in filtered water
    and it sinks about (what i can figure) .006 farther than 1.000. I had gotten water in it
    (there's a hole o...

    it should taste just fine, albeit a bit lighter than you planned. FWIW, i've found that the
    smaller mashes are a lot harder to hold temp in. what i like to do with any BIAB/stovetop type
    mash is start...

    You're right, mostly. I was reading 1.2 lbs of chocolate, rather than oz. Also, not knowing
    what your base malt was, I was assuming 35ppg for it, just to be conservative. I ran the

    The extra .5 quart would only drop your OG by about 3 points. (35 expected final gravity point)

    and I took the temp at 65. Now onto the recipe, etc.It is my 3rd batch and I tried Orfy's Mild
    Mannered A...

    I conditioned this for a while, after 3 months it was getting really nice, 6 months amazing.
    this was room temp though, as I don't have a "cellar" set-up.Great, thanks for the quick
    response.

    I'm a noobie to homebrewing. This will be only my 3rd batch and I'm starting by doing just 1
    gallon batches. I was wondering how long you bottle conditioned and at what temp? Also, has
    anybody bulk st...
