If I were going to brew it, I'd probably leave the oats out & mash a little cooler (152).

My questions would be:1. How sure are you about the volume (6 gallons)? 79% is pretty high,
although not ridiculously so.2. Is the pH meter recently calibrated?Time also helps--mashing
time, and sparg...

I think the "relax & don't worry" bromide probably is appropriate here, with the caveat that
you should taste & test before bottling or kegging and if the FG is way too high, then maybe
add a Belgian ...

What style of beer is it? If it doesn't ferment out enough to your taste, you could add a more
aggressive yeast strain.

I wouldn't think that would be a problem for a nut brown. When are you cutting off the sparge?
Should be stopping when the gravity gets to about 1.010.

How much corn sugar is in the recipe for a 5 gallon batch? If it's more than a half pound or
so, that might be the problem. Maybe it's always there, but you only notice it sometimes.

The temperature! If you start out with more water, it won't need to be as hot.

I would think you'd get some astringency from the smaller crush. Maybe it's time for a
Brulosophy exbeeriment. Coors pulverizes everything into flour and uses filter presses to
extract the wort. To me...

A fairly easy solution would be to batch-sparge: mash with 3.75 g.water, drain, then infuse
another 3.75 g.& drain that.

If you don't sparge, you'll lose some efficiency due to the sugars left in the liquid held in
the grains. Also, you'll need to recalculate the water temperature to reach the same mash temp.
