Soapy would indicate either poorly rinsed equipment after washing or autolysis of the yeast,
yeast breaking down usually after too long in the primary. Autolysis isn't likely, unless
you've had this s...

No problem. Yeah, I use feeler gauges to set the gap. If you do go with .042, I hope it works
for you. I also hope it continues to work for me:mug:

Dude, no way! Hard to believe. Can you give me some exact numbers on what you did, what malt,
how many pounds, etc.?Sure. Here are the specs:10.5# Great Western 2 Row1# Great Western White

I just changed up my routine, so I only have one data point for you. I condition my malt like
you though, and have a rims so I recirculate. I milled at .042 for this one. My conversion
efficiency was ...

Thanks AJ. This helps a bunch to get more accurate results. Now I just need to start doing the
calculations myself and I'd be golden. Too bad I don't have the resolve.

I do have a question now though. If I take a gallon of water at 70F and heat it up to 150F what
would its volume be? I'm assuming the thermal expansion of 4% is from room temperature to

You have a boil off of 1.25 gallons or so?If the 7.21 gallons of finished wort after the boil
isn't your batch size, what is? Where does the rest of the wort go?Yup, boil off is about 1.25
gallons an ...

As the title suggests, my post boil gravity is always 2-5 points off, depending on the grain
bill, from my BeerSmith calculation. I've just learned to except it and adjust my recipes

I would not worry about O2. The top of the carboy should still be filled with CO2. It wont fly
out when you open up the carboy. The C02 is heavier than
