    I had great success doing all-grain brews in my old apartment. I had two 4-gallon pots and
    would do a split boil on my stove. Just account for the extra boil-off rate and remember to
    split your hop ad...

    Maybe the water minerals (Ca+, Mg+ specifically) aren't in the optimum range, especially if
    your water has a high pH. My efficiency went up 15% when I started adding gypsum to bring my
    Ca+ in the 100-...

    Does anyone know a simple way to get a pre-boil gravity reading when doing a split boil? I'm in

    Brewing this up tomorrow. Unfortunately I only have dry yeast at my disposal, and no means of
    lagering. I'll be pitching two packs of Notty and keep temps at 60F.

    liquid yeast varieties. Sometimes I brew with my father near Ottawa and buy my stuff from
    located near ...

    Temp was under 70 when took reading, the wort looked and tasted like waterLooked like water
    also? That's just weird. Maybe its a thermometer issue? I just dont understand how you would
    get no reading ...

    Just to make sure, what temperature was the wort when you took the gravity reading? Higher
    temperatures will give a lower reading, some people overlook/ forget about this.

    Ok that reading really helped. I think I def sparged wrong. I started draining my wort before
    adding sparge water? Also I am getting iodine strips today for my next brew. I got 1 kit
    crushed and 1 not...
