Did you sparge? If so, fly sparge or batch sparge? I recommend you take a preboil gravity
measurement. Had you done that, you would have known your OG was going to be off and could have

What is your mash efficiency? Have you measured that preboil? I have about 80% mash efficiency

Looks normal to me for day four. Every beer ferments differently. You should leave it alone for

I'm no water expert. If you posted in the brew science forum you'd get the best advice from
