    Just wondering. On big beers like that I like to wait and add the syrup 48-72 hours after
    pitching. Usually gives the yeast a head start so their not overwhelmed.I thought about it but
    I was not sure ...

    At 1.082 your yeasties should be fine. When did you do the syrup addition?~ at 2 mins... took
    longer than I thought to make the syrup.. made notes not to use as much water the next time...

    Then why would you want to brew this again?Because I screwed up my mash temp (~13 degF higher)
    and ended up with a sweetish bitter hoppy carbonated drink... and mostly because I love DFH90
    and I think...

    I found the source of the high FG. My thermometer was out of cal. Was off by +11F !!So, I
    really mashed at ~162F making the sugars un-fermentable. Beer smelt and tasted ok while
    kegging. Should be rea...

    After adding all strike water and stirring thoroughly the resulting mash temp will be achieved
    before putting the lid on the mash tun. How much dead space was left in the mash tun? 10 degree

    I had the exact same issue and found my thermometer was off by ~12degF. So, I was really
    mashing at ~165 degF making unfermentable sugars.Do a cold bath and boiling water test with the
    thermometer

    If the sach temp was 162F then would expect a much higher FG than 1.025 for a 1.083 OG.Em...
    could it be because I did not preheat the mash tun (which was sitting in the garage @ 50degF)
    and dropped ~...

    I am in the same situation. The OG was 1.083 and active airlock for 72 hrs and then nothing.3
    weeks later I have consistent FG of 1.025. There was very little bitterness (not sweet tho')
    with strong n...
