    I purchased some amylase enzyme yesterday from my LHBS put a teaspoon into each fermenter and
    today the airlock is bubbling! Now I just need to keep an eye on the SG and make sure it
    doesn't go too lo...

    I just pulled the trigger on the ThermaPen! They are discontinuing British Racing Green, so I
    got it for $79. No more inaccurate readings!

    also man, I just had a son as well, and Ive found that scaling down and doing 2.5-3 gallon
    batches inside on the stovetop really makes things a ton easier.Congrats! I figured out a way
    to fence off my...

    Just saw this after I submitted. Too low would yield a more fermentable wort.I am dumb, peterj
    is right. That would mean HIGHER mash temp. I had that backwards. So, likely I've been mashing
    at 158F, w...

    Do you use Campden tabs? Ive heard that using too much will cause poor attenuation.If all else
    fails you could always just mash longer to allow the sugars to become more fermentable.I build
    my own wat...

    ...you'll still get complete conversion and the iodine test will still be passing. But you will
    have produced a less fermentable wort with more dextrins than you wanted. This is interesting,
    I didn't ...

    Conan's always hit around +80% for me. Do you do anything special for Conan? Like mashing lower
    or adding sugar a few days in? I have seen these recommendations, but ignored them for my first
    try.

    Also, did you aerate the batches when you pitched?I do aerate, I dump the wort from the kettle
    into the carboy (I've been told that's plenty aeration for medium gravity beers.) However I
    give a good 3...

    Verified your thermometers aren't off?This is a good point, and would explain a lot. However
    the iodine test passed at the end of the mash (though I could have been doing it wrong).I
    haven't, but I ju...

    Since my son was born, Iíve been brewing a lot less these days. After about a six month hiatus,
    I started brewing again. Unfortunately these last three batches since hiatus have had really
    poor attenu...
