    Nvm on the grain crush....mine looked like this:

    Have you checked to make sure your thermometer is giving accurate readings? It's not something
    I've had to deal with personally, but a friend recently realized his thermometer was way off,
    which was w...

    So if I have two buckets, do you suggest siphoning the wort between the two before taking
    gravity reading or simply pouring the whole thing from one to another giving a good splash?I
    pour the wort bet...

    OP I had the same problem on my PM and I have no idea why.That's my guess. I have seen at least
    a dozen "my gravity is low!" threads in the last month, and every time it was someone topping
    off. Just ...

    Id take another stab @ it before complaining about grain crush to your supplier.I may have
    missed it, but you did stir really well when you added the grain at the start of the mash,
    correct?relax, hav...

    Haha, no trust me...I read it just fine. Actually, I looked at it about 20 times and each time
    I was like "There's no way..."

    As much as I hate to say it, the only thing that makes sense is a mis-reading on the gravity
    check, or the amount of grain was actually much less than 5 lbs.When/how did you check the
    gravity?That's w...

    I'm thinking it was the grain crush. My first AG hit my target OG. My second one, a hefeweizen,
    came in way low. Everybody suggested it was the crush and I emailed Northern Brewer and their
    response s...

    This ain't a tea party. You gotta squeeze it. Use a colander and a pot lid to get the goodness
    out. And stir it thoroughly during sparge. Then squeeze it again.I did stir and squeeze during
    the sparge...

    This. It sounds more to me like you're just steeping grains rather than doing a true partial
    mash. You're just not going to extract sugars doing it this way like you would from a true
    mash.How am I no...
