  • Posted in thread: Hydrometer Reading - very confused on 10-06-2015 at 12:59 AM
    That reading is 0.985, as described by you. However, that still sounds very low, as does your
    starting gravity. I think you're reading your hydrometer wrong.

    I prefer all of my beers cold (30s), whether that be a light pilsner or a stout. I know my
    preferences don't match all the styles, but I don't care. I like what I like.

    Favorite thing besides drinking it? Easy. Brewing it. Next question.

  • Posted in thread: Why does my LHBS make me feel like a noob? on 10-02-2015 at 05:47 PM
    Called my LHBS to ask some advice about my spiced holiday ale I have brewing. During the
    conversation my LHBS tells me in passing to leave the beer in primary for 2 weeks and bottle.I
    mention I always...

    Have you ever read a book on brewing?Sure have. Warming up an ale to room temp for cleanup is
    not a universally agreed upon step.

    I also think something changed in my efficiency especially my mash efficiency. I get my grains
    milled at my lhbs and for awhile I had my beersmith profile set at 68% and was hitting all my
    numbers wit...

    It sounds to me like a measuring error. That's the only thing I can think of if your preboil
    gravity was right on after being properly cooled down.

  • Posted in thread: Adding muscadine to a stout on 10-01-2015 at 01:17 AM
    If I were going this route, I would make the muscadines into wine, and then add the wine to the
    beer after fermentation. I don't know that this would go well in a stout though... But YMMV.
    Have you ev...

  • Posted in thread: Favorite quick turn around recipe on 10-01-2015 at 01:11 AM
    Saisons are actually one of my slower turnaround beers. They're in secondary for a minimum of
    two months. My quick turnaround beers are IPAs. They're best drank fresh. I try to go from
    grain to glass ...

    I'm a bit confused. You mentioned both 7 gallons and 7.5 gallons. If you only had 7 gallons
    preboil, but planned for 7.5, that could explain your low gravity readings post boil.
