    My hydrometer reads .096 in my tap water. So, it off quite a bit. I haven't tried it in
    distilled water. When I say I mash for 60+ minutes, its pretty close to an hour. I may go 10
    minutes over, depen...

    My attempt at stopping conversion with the addition of the first sparge water may be
    inadequate. My wort is obviously more fermentable than I expect, but not as much as I'm
    recording, due to my poorly...

    I didn't check my pH on this batch, but it has always been in the ball park when I have checked
    it. After checking the pH more than a dozen batches and it being close, I stopped.I sparge as
    soon as my...

    The beer always tastes fine. I'm not really concerned about low FG, more curious. If its a
    technique issue, I'll try to correct it. I don't mash out on my first runnings. I don't have
    the volume to en...

    Maybe I have been overshooting my OGs and measuring them low, but thinking they are accurate.

    I checked my hydrometer with tap water and it reads 0.096. So it is a little low. I checked my
    last 12 batches and every one is 5-10 points lower than beersmith estimates, but I have hit or
    overshot m...

    I have never calibrated my hydrometer. I will do that. But if hydrometer readings are linear, I
    should be reading low OGs as well. I mash in a 10 gallon round cooler. I measure my mash temp
    with a lab...

    I brew all grain. Usually hit my mash temp within a degree or two. Mash for 60+ minutes. I hit
    my target volumes and original gravity within a few points. But, my final gravity is
    consistently low. My...

  • Posted in thread: Beersmith Weirdness-disappearing ingredients on 03-17-2014 at 03:24 AM
    So all my ingredients have disappeared in Beersmith. I open a recipe, go to the brewsheet and
    everything is normal. Ingredients are listed as they should be.I go to the 'recipe view' page
    where you ed...

    I like tettnanger and hallertauer in my wheats.
