    Any roommates playing a trick on you?I don't think my wife would go through that much effort.
    lolI'm guessing like these guys said, oxidation in the darker bottles. Must be something going
    on in your ...

    Did you do anything differently in your process from bottle to bottle? Did it all come out of
    the same bottling bucket? Or are you certain you didn't label some other beer wrong on
    accident? no. yes. ...

    Dark color and hops muted - I'd usually vote oxidation. Unusual though in that oxidation tends
    to get worse over time, so must be just in some bottles. Was there anything unusual about
    bottling day th...

    I brewed an IPA in late May with El Dorado, Moteuka, and Azacca hops, and used honey malt as my
    crystal malt substitute. I was not very happy with the beer. The brew not only was very dark
    considering...

    What was the date on the yeast? I've had older yeast take 3 to 4 days to get going. In these
    events I would check your gravity first. If the yeast is slow to start and actually shows life,
    I would ste...

    Yeah. I noticed at the bottom of the starter some black specs. Should I pitch another 400
    billion cells?

    Brewed my first lager yesterday. I made a starter Thursday (2liters) with gigayeast (200
    billion cells). I had my starter on the stir plate for 2 days at about 65. Well before pitching
    I noticed I did...

    and the good news is your target SG was 1.060 and you actually ended up with 1.062... not

    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...

  • Posted in thread: Mash Efficiency Too High, Brewhouse Efficiency too Low on 05-28-2015 at 06:36 PM
    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...
