Thanks! I guess I need the OG too, sorry I didn't realize that!1.067 OG (was shooting for
1.060, but have been getting higher efficiencies lately. A little BIG for a pale ale, oh well
:rockin: )1.007 ...

Thanks yooper. I need to find a great lhbs that has a decent crush. My tiny apartment can't fit
a grain mill.I live in a small condo and have one. They aren't big. I keep mine in the box it
came in. I...

The more I look at that pic, the more I think it's the crush. There are a lot of whole kernels
in there. If you go back to that place again, run some grain through his mill and show him. If
there are ...

Here's the pic.If I'm seeing it right, that's a terrible crush. Crush is honestly the first and
easiest place to start with efficiency issues. Try and get your grain crush somewhere else if

lot, so move that 1.5oz of Cascade at 30min down to flame out. That will help get the IBUs back
in check and...

Recipes? No way anyone can help without knowing what you brewed, grains, amounts, hops, hop
amounts, etc.Wheat, carapils, and crystal malts in general will help with head retention.

I've been doing quite a few SMaSH's and single hop beers recently. After 3+ years of brewing
and close to 100 batches, I finally decided to get to know specific grains and hops better. I'm

Love the early morning brew too! Before my son was born (now 2yrs old) I would always brew late
night, which was easy and fun before kids. Now, if I'm not well into my brew day by 8am, then
I'm not br...
