    I think that could definitely be your problem... higher mash temps make for less fermentables,
    however, I don't know if would make it that bad. Are you aerating/oxygenating your wort well?
    What about ...

    Thanks guy's I'll adjust my starter DME/Water volume as per your suggestion. I am still
    wondering at what temp you start extracting Dextrins or unfermentable sugars from the grain, I
    may have a faulty...

    I may have just stumbled onto my problem. It may have nothing to do with my yeast and
    everything to do with a my thermometor I am using when taking strike and sparge water temps...
    I just realized it ...

    Guy's,I'm in desperate need of your expertise on starters and stir plates.
    :confused::confused::confused::confused:I have been all grain brewing for almost two years, and
    to date have never had a part...

    No pump, but if need be I will invest in one... But if I don't have to, can the cleaning be
    done without a pump? How in the world does a person get a sponge earplug through?

  • Posted in thread: Cleaning a counter flow chiller on 05-23-2010 at 07:51 PM
    Hey guy's,I have been thinking about using a counter flow chiller instead of an immersion
    chiller. Everything I've read says counterflow is a more efficient way of cooling the wort. My
    biggest concern...

    That would reduce my drinking time by 35 minutes, NO WAY :)

    Thankis, Thinner mash it is then with a longer mash time...Longer mash time also means more
    homebrew to drink ;).. I like the trade off.Cheers,Frank

    Interesting idea and I may think about doing that... I'm still curious if the 1/1 ratio would
    be less efficient or no changeThanks,Frank

    Hi All,My mash tun is a 48qt cooler which has worked extremely well for me to date..The problem
    I have is I pretty much maxed out the TUN at 27Lbs of grain @ 1.25/qts H20/Lb.I am planning on
    brewing a...
