When 3864 is put on the shelves I pretty much buy the LHBS out of supply. No worries on the

the fridge. ...

It finished at 1.012 and tastes rather full of phenols, lots of clove -no banana.I cold crashed
it down to 44 and was truly amazed at how little yeast was left on the bottom of the fermenter.

Now hold on there Cowboy. I've been double batch sparging for years and since getting my own
grain mill, a simple Barley Crusher, I've been getting a consistent 81% efficiency, nothing
anywhere near a...

So after I correct the volumes by adding back the 3/4 gallon left in the kettle, it looks like
I measure my post-boil extraction rate at 87%That's a huge increase over the 60-65% I was

Did you check your reading against a hydrometer? That would be a brewhouse efficiency of 95%,
and are you sure about your water volumes? That would be 78% eff for 5 gal, which would be more
