    Also the attenuation numbers provided by the yeast companies do not mean you cannot get beers
    that fall well outside that range...Good to hear, as this often happens to me! I was never sure
    how reliab...

    Thanks a bunch, that is super helpful!

    A couple of weeks ago we made a honey nut brown ale. The AG brew day went fine. The mash
    temperature was in the 151F - 153F range, which in retrospect I realized was a mistake... I
    wanted to mash warm...

    I do let the wort sit in a pot at ambient temperature as I finish with the mash.

    DCP, glad to hear it. Like I said the beer tastes fine so maybe it isn't a problem. I am not
    trying to hit numbers for a competition. I'm using BeerSmith's default values for grain to
    water... somethi...

    Nope, no added sugars. I guess I will just double-check all my instruments and try not to worry
    about it. The beer's fine. :)

    I mash at 152F for 60 minutes, always. (Until I was researching this topic today I didn't even
    realize that mash temperature altered the fermentability of the sugars in the wort... pretty
    cool.)

    My thermometer is a Thermapen, and it's been recently verified in boiling water so that
    probably isn't it. I've also had the problem across 2 hydrometers--though I have to admit I
    have never calibrate...

    I recently made a sorta-kinda-clone of Raging Bitch Belgian IPA. The apparent attenuation came
    out around 10% higher than expected, at 85%.OG: 1.073FG: 1.011AG mash temp: 152FApparent:

    Unsolicited reference from a passer-by:I recently bought a commercial-style chamber vacuum
    sealer for my home kitchen, because that's the kind of guy I am. I did a LOT of research on the
    cheapest plac...
