    and the good news is your target SG was 1.060 and you actually ended up with 1.062... not
    bad!:ban:Yeah. I feel much better now that i know what happened.Through this minor issue, and
    the reading up i...

    I had a similar situation last weekend. Took my pre-boil ~1.048, and my post boil reading was
    1.046...oops! I'm guessing my wort wasn't stirred up enough after sparging so I had tons of
    sugars sitting...

    I am a little confused because it sounds like you took a preboil gravity reading before you
    sparged. This might be the reason for the odd results. If you took a reading and then sparged,
    your points m...

    Yeah... first red flag is 100% mash efficiency.Not saying it wouldn't be possible, but probably
    didn't happen.I know, that was the first problem i had with it. Unless my grains i get from my
    homebrew ...

    Erroneous gravity readings and/or volumes are the problem, unless you're using top up water at
    some point.If no top up water is used then there is simply no way to have a lower OG than
    PreBoil Gravity...

    Concerns with efficiency I brewed sunday and my target pre-boil OG was 1.06. My resulting mash
    pre boil OG was 1.07. A mash efficiency of 100%. I took my sample and cooled it to 75 degrees
    before i me...

    I am venturing into sour brewing. Before i start, there is a bunch of reading, research, etc...
    that i must do. I have the book American Sours shipping to the house, and i've been listening
    to the Sou...

    Take the sample and cool it to 68F or 60F (most hydrometers are calibrated at this value)I'll
    do this next time. I'll get one of those testing stands like you have shown. Never thought
    about that for ...

  • Posted in thread: Issues with Pre-Boil Gravity Readings on 04-24-2015 at 01:44 PM
    So the last couple batches i've brewed, i've noticed something.Typically, just before i start
    the boil, i take a pre boil gravity reading with a beer thief and a hydrometer, and adjust for
    temperature...

    Livonia (New Roads, Northwest of Baton Rouge)I ordered mine today. I'll try and post the
    progress here. I've tried to keep a garden for a few years but my thumb has yet to turn green.
    I'm better with ...
