Thanks for the vote of confidence guys. What's a good temp to mash? I was thinking 150-152.

It seems his is a bit more Crystal, maybe I should put a little more? I read in an article they
recommend around 15% crystal with some coming from medium and some from dark with just a hint

So I have some grains laying around needing some use and thought I'd throw together this mild.
I've never brewed this style before so I would like some feedback.

Hey guys, just wanted to share my recipe for Intolerant. What I'm going for is a sweet milk
chocolate stout with a moderate roasted malt backing. I plan to age this on cocoa nibs in
secondary as well....

So update, we got a more fine grind and brewed today, 81% efficiency. Feels good!

Put a blanket around the cooler, that will help reduce heat loss. Also look into a better
cooler, we are using an older one that was in the garage and it keeps the heat steady for an
hour even with it...

Thanks, I'm sober/not tired now so I will read that resource, thanks very much. Our next plan
though, for equipment, is buying this. I can't wait for consistency.

Thanks for your posts, it's gotten me less worried about my methods. This time I made sure to
stir much more aggressively and thoroughly than ever before so it can't be that. Our mash also
stayed at 1...

Just to clarify you're saying that it's almost certainly the crush at fault since the run-off
was 1.018 after running off our complete volume and being 20 points under?If this happens next
