    Got mine transferred to secondary over the weekend. Was wondering if you all think this is too
    much headspace for a prolonged secondary? Due to the excessive blow off there is about .5
    gallons to 1 ga...

    Hi, I'm currently fermenting my second batch - the first turned out great (thanks everyone),
    finishing at 1.016.The second one however, seems to be stuck. I mashed at 64.4 and hit an OG of
    1.093, I us...

    So I gave this a try with my English barleywine. Didn't quite work. Beersmith called for just
    under 8 gallons. I ran with 7 gallons in the mash. Somehow I ended up with bubbles forming
    under the mash ...

    I do 5 gallon BIAB with my 10 gallon pot. The last batch I did had my mash darn near at the rim
    of my pot. I'm doing another that has a little more grain so I know I'm going to overflow. I
    figure I ha...

    Nope, no cold pockets. I recirculate during the mash.Let me see if I can find that thread. It's
    pretty old I think.EDIT: not sure if this was the one I was thinking of.... read up on that.

    Right, this is probably a fermentation issue that has nothing to do with the mashing/brewing
    part. BeerSmith is trying its best to help you predict FG based on yeast strain, but it can't
    know your fer...

    From what I've read, it sounds like he's hitting his desired efficiency. It's the FG that's
    off.Yep, exactly. FG gets too low but OG and volumes are all good.

    Maybe it has to do with the placement of your thermocouple. I recently discovered that having
    mine located too far from the kettle valve and choking down the flow too much was causing the
    true mash te...

    No, letting it do it's own thing. I've read multiple sources mentioning 82-84 (Michael Jackson
    for one) and someone somewhere mentioned they typically keep it below 83. I do have temp
    control, but was...

    I've heard of other BIABers being plagued with lower FGs. I'm one of them. I just know I'm
    consistently low by a few points and don't sweat it.Any reason as to why? Cold pockets among
    the grains?
