Posted in thread: Mash Time Question - In Middle of Brew! on 11-26-2015 at 08:08 PM
I did a stout a few weeks ago. Overshot my mash in temp and ended up at 156. Managed to cool it
down over about 20 minutes to 150. Using S-04 I still ended up with a 1.012 FG after starting
at 1.060. ...

When it's done, bottle up a couple gallons of it. Brew up a couple gallons of something similar
maybe around 1.065 pour that into the fermentor with the remaining beer. You'll have two
gallons of sess...

Actually sounds pretty good like it is. I'd try it before modifying it. Make a gallon (divide
ingredients by 5). If you like it make a bigger batch as is. If you want to change it you will
know where ...

Missing a number, what's the post boil volume? I have to assume it's something like

Posted in thread: What grind size to use on my malt mill? on 11-21-2015 at 01:50 PM

I don't know about that. Actually, I really don't, but I won't let that stop me from commenting

If the thing was manufactured in China and Polarware just branded it, there's no telling what
the Chinese did, or will do. It could just be a simple manufacturing mistake where galvanized
steel was th...

It's probably done. Take it any lower and it won't be quite to style. Another .005 drop in
gravity is maybe another 0.8% in ABV.Plus you've used extract. Extract usually won't ferment as
dry as an all...
