    I've been working on a honey wheat recipe ever since SWMBO wanted a wheat beer and I had tried
    a Blue Moon honey wheat.I felt I had roughly nailed down what I was after but then felt it was
    a little l...

    My projected OG was 1.049 but ended with 1.056. I'll b feeling confident with my next brew
    increasing from 8 lbs to 9.5 lbs of grains. Seems the 11 lbs I had initially set my latest
    brews at would be ...

    I have been pressing the grains and will try using a small pot lid to see if it improves the
    output.I'll be brewing a lower gravity beer later this week and will see how 8 lbs at 1.25
    qts/lb works and...

    I guess I need to measure water levels and mark them with an awl in my pot. I wouldn't have
    thought I lost quite that much, though I guess I could see it being more difficult to notice
    with nearly hal...

    I've been figuring numbers and contemplating...If grain absorption is roughly 0.125 qts/lb
    (1.375 qts for 11 lbs) this won't put me too far beyond my 6 gals (I've not worried about the
    absorption loss...

    I'm not keen on the various types of sparging jargon. What I had done, and am doing now, is to
    pour sparge water and allow it to drain and then repeat for as much water as I have (3
    containers now). I...

    Once the mash is over I pour from my brew pot the sparge water into two pots (~1 gal each of
    water) to keep warm and fill my 1 gal pitcher with the first sparge. This takes up the whole
    stove at that ...

    It's because of my pot volume that I cannot mash and sparge well more than 7 lbs of grains and
    a typical recipe calls for about 11 or so pounds.When doing partial mashes I liked a 1.5 qt/gal
    ratio but...

    I bought a 5 gal water cooler to better hold temps for all-grain. As I found out I shorted
    myself on the sparge water as my pot only handles 6 gals.I still have 5 brews worth of
    ingredients but have h...
