    So I've been thinking about my low conversion efficiency and I am wondering if it has anything
    to do with my re circulation...I have a 5500W element below my pizza screen "false bottom" that
    the PID t...

    Greg, I don't aim it straight down, just slightly downward. I generally have the nozzle
    submerged about an inch below the surface, aimed to create a whirlpool and angled slightly
    downward so some of t...

    I should have added in that I aim it slightly downwards, so it keeps everything in suspension
    and moving. Prior to recirc, at grain-in, I stir the mash like it owes me money to avoid
    doughballs.But no...

    The roller gap width doesn't always control the amount of fines generated when crushing grain.
    If you're using a drill and spinning the mill too fast, you'll shred the husks and create a
    bunch of flou...

    Do you condition your grain?What do you mean by "condition your grain"?

    I was just guessing on the D180. The only other thing I could think of in my brewing process
    was not a long enough mash for conversion. Think I did at least 60 minutes. With that being
    said, the grain...

    It's looking like that is the case, which is a bummer. Was hoping it was the 530 but if it was
    the 099 (maybe not enough yeast?) should have finished the job. Wonder if it had to do with the
    D180.Afte...

    So the WLP099 has gotten it down to 1.023. Fermentation characteristics are nice, but it still
    has that residual sweetness. The only other time I have used WLP530 was on a Saison and that
    hit 86% atte...

    That's always a difficult question, but at that OG the beer may be done, especially if the
    krausen has fallen and it is clear. Re-pitching may bring it down, I've personally had mixed
    results. I kegge...
