My projected OG was 1.049 but ended with 1.056. I'll b feeling confident with my next brew

brews at would be ...

I have been pressing the grains and will try using a small pot lid to see if it improves the

It's because of my pot volume that I cannot mash and sparge well more than 7 lbs of grains and

I bought a 5 gal water cooler to better hold temps for all-grain. As I found out I shorted
