    Thanks for all the great input you guys. That totally answers my questions. I was mashing at
    too low a temp for one thing and not milling the wheat enough as a second factor. 2.5 hours of
    mashing with...

    This is my idea of an IIPA. It's nice.

    Hmmm. I must be doing something wrong then. It took me over two hours to mash to completion
    with two decoctions, because I brew with a very old system. This time I did add 2 pounds of raw

    Should I expect a full starch conversion with a hefeweizen of ratio of 2:1 wheat over pale

    These are the things I need help with. I feel like I'm in a little over my head with kegging
    washing and filling.The brewhouse will use CIP for sure. Even for a 7bbl fermenter. But
