When you say your are pitching the yeast at hydration temperature, does that mean you are
pitching as you are cooling the wart, so pitching when it reaches 100F and then continuing on
to cool below 80...

Personally, I wouldn't worry about the starch test. I have never passed one and some of mine
finish as low as 1.008 so I don't think the amount of starch after a long final rest has a

Normally gluten free with sorghum is fairly clear with a three week fermentation and and most

I use buckwheat for head retention. Not sure if maltodextrin helps but i don't use it on AG.
The one time i used it on an AG batch it was too much. I don't know of anything else. I carb to

With 12.19 lb grain and 7 gallons at 1.037 collected, that is a little over 21 ppg which is not
bad at all. However, at 4.75 gal pitching volume that would give an OG of 1.054 without any
