P.S. just had a thought about your original post and your reading. Depending on how you took
the sample you may have had a section of more concentrated wort (it does vary as you sparge).I
have run int...

Thanks a lot guys for your help. Lots of good information.Brewguyver, how do you know what

Make sure you mix your preboil wort really well before you take a sample. Thank you for the
quick response. I think you solved all my problems. I did not mix it at all and my thief took
