I can't find the foam sheets? Went to Home Depot and Lowes. Looked, couldn't find them, asked

unionrdr, Thanks again. I had not been continuing to stir throughout the boil. I will

extract in 2.5 ...

Thanks everyone. I will reply more later, but I will say for now, I have been very deliberate
and careful about not scorching, but it keeps happening. I turn the burner off and remove it
from the burn...

Thank you both. Points well taken. I will look into getting a scale soon.As for this starter, I
