    I looked into the Amalyse and read some stuff about it taking beers all the way down to 1.000!
    Since I wasn't WAY off and would indeed need a mere teaspoon, I decided not to risk it. I
    bottled the bee...

    Based on your apparent tastes and the notion that starting simple is good... I'd order this:
    and two packs of Wyeast 3068.:mug:Do you think he'd really need two packs? Hefe's are usually
    under 1.060...

    You can add me to the "screwed up my first batch by mashing way to high" group. As you have
    learned, mashing high will leave you with unfermentable sugars and a sweet beer. There is an
    option of using...

    give it a try before tossing. it might be ok and you may enjoy it.OH, I'll try it for sure. I
    have only had one beer that I have tossed some of - I choked down most of it... lol My wife had

    i think my ABV was around 3-3.5%. had a strong yeast flavor since i tossed so much in(3 or 4
    packs) and was rather sweet. i really didn't enjoy it at all. i had it kegged for 2 weeks and
    decided to to...

    Your mash was too hot, so your FG is higher then to be expected. did the same thing with my
    first BIAB. i was over 170F and i never got below 1.030 and OG was 1.05 something. lesson
    learned.I found th...

    Update: So I racked to the secondary today - all active fermentation had ceased - there had
    been a very small krausen on this thing... I took a gravity reading and it was at 1.020! :(
    This had been th...

    Thanks TangoHotel that sounds like a good idea. I'll try it next batch.

    Oh, my one BIG question:Should I keep temp probe in the actual mash in the bag or just
    underneath it in the water? I'd hate to have the same issue arise again.

    Okay folks, I lost internet on brew day so I'm back to fill you in on what went down. Though
    the temperature apparently hit 180 degrees in the pot while mashing, I had been about 30 - 40
    minutes into ...
