Don't fear the plastic cooler. A huge number of home brewers mash in a cooler, as did I before
becoming a celiac. I haven't tried all grain yet with GF grains. I use a bazooka screen, worked

I typically leave mine in the primary for 2 weeks and am within a point or two of the FG. I
always do a 2ndary due to the high vol of trub. But really take a gravity measurement to know
if it's done.S...

why it was higher when hotter. Beer smith has a conversion tool. Color looks nice.

Seems to make sense. Only a few comments:You did not not note a step regarding adding water to
your preboil (e.g. after the steep), assume you'll top the remaining to reach about 2.9 Gallon

Just brewed my 1st beer using Chestnuts a few weeks ago. I followed the Mashing instructions
from Trails End as follows:Heat 5 gallons of water to about 160-170 degrees and add bag with

Did you use a hydrometer or refractometer for your gravity readings? Refractometer is not
accurate with fermented beers unless you use a conversion.
