Posted in thread: Low Efficiency & High Attenuation on 06-19-2013 at 01:39 AM
My hydrometer reads two points high, which I account for. I use Kaiser's water calculator,
though I have some concerns about seasonal variation in my water supply. My water is very low
mineral and hen...

Since going all-grain, I've been consistently seeing very low efficiency (sub 70% with a single
batch sparge), and very high attenuation (85%+ AA in all malt worts with a 60 minute 150-153F

What yeast & malts did you use? Does it smell like cooked cabbage or rotten eggs? If it's
sulfur or DMS, then it should fade with time. If it smells like asphalt or rubber bands, there
ain't much hope...

Sounds like your results are in the same ballpark as mine, although it's hard to a make direct
comparison because of the temperature curve on your first hop addition. I found the aromatics
to be extre...

I've only just brewed my first double dry-hopped beer, but a lot of pro brewers do it. I asked
Matt Brynildson about it, and here's what he replied:We know that yeast activity can result in

I agree with the infection diagnosis. I had a similar problem, and after I left the bottles
around for a few months I got gushers.

It was a 1.053 pale ale. Based on my results, I think that a 30 minute hopstand at 200 is about
equivalent in IBUs to a 5 minute addition (Tinseth), while a 30 minute hopstand at 175 is about

I recently did a similar experiment, except I didn't add any mash hops. I did a split batch,
half of which (2.5 gallons) received 3 oz of hops held at 200F for 30 minutes, and half of
which received 3...

Most English ale yeasts flocculate well. Try WLP002 or WLP007.

Carbonates don't really have much flavor, though. It takes a LOT of chalk for me to be able to
taste it, even in water.Granted, the flavor could be something else in the water. But it's
