    Mash in, had the heat off but my thermometer is mounted around the bottom of 4 gallon mark to

    Figured I'd chime in since I officially just lost my first 5 gal batch. Did an "Old Speckled

    yeast? You're talking about washing the sludge at the bottom after a primary fermentation? I
    want to lear...
