    I am guessing that you are batch sparging? Domed false bottoms are more appropriate for fly
    sparging in that you want no channeling and you are rinsing the grain at a very slow speed. For
    batch spargi...

    I had the same thing happen a couple of weeks back. I was 1.038 preboil. I didn't change
    anything. 90 minute boil, and same hop schedule. Hasn't carbed yet but all samples have been
    pretty tasty. Didn...

    Nope, ceramic. Good idea though and it got me thinking. I did mill my grain and mash in my
    kitchen. If the plate got milled dust on it though or something:confused:. Same thing I always
    do but maybe t...

    Well I kegged this today and it had dropped to a 1.010 final gravity. Not record setting but
    more or less what I was expecting. So, I give up. Mysteries of beer I guess. If I ever come up
    with an answ...

    I don't think that necessarily follows. Both starch and sugar will impact gravity. A gravity
    reading alone cannot tell you whether or not you've got conversion. A wort loaded with starch
    could have th...

    Thanks for the link to that article Doug. Not being much of a cook I didn't know there was a
    long and short grain rice. I checked the box I used and it is long, so maybe my mash temp was a
    little low ...

    Same thing happened to me a couple of brews ago. Was in the fridge for a whole month. Pulled it
    out the night before, poured out the very clear liquid on top and let it get to room temp over
    night. Af...

    I just brewed Biermuncher's Cream of Three Crops last weekend and after a 90 min mash I did an
    iodine test and failed. I figured my thermometer was out of whack so I checked, but it was
    fine. Decided ...
