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

under 8 gallons. I ran with 7 gallons in the mash. Somehow I ended up with bubbles forming
under the mash ...
