vorlauf, drain.Then I got lazy and went to a single step sparge, letting it sit for 15 minutes

I'd probably try to end up in the 1.011 to 1.009 range for my FG which would mean having enough
grain to get you at about 1.060 OG (assuming you want 6.2% ABV). I'd mash at about 150*ish.
Shoot for 60...

I used a slurry from a previous batch for the stout I mentioned above. Turned out great. I
hadn't really thought about the whole blend thing. I'll be buying some again for a few upcoming
batches so it...
Posted in thread: Massive amounts of black malt...What's the worst that can happen? on 10-12-2012 at 09:17 PM

My guess would be that you opened the TAD bottle while the beer was at room temp. Try sticking
the bottle in the fridge for 24 hours first, and I would think that should help.
