    There isn't a day that goes by that I don't read, think, or work on something brewing related.
    I had to take a long break due to staying alive. Brewing did just that for me. Now that I can

    My sparge water was at about 190. Mash temp was at 149. Crush and mash ph play a roll. I also
    sparge with ...
