The biggest disappointment was the drop in temp during the hour mash. I really need to get my
insulation cut to fit the new kettleI had a similar drop in temp - I mashed 4lbs of maris

My Typical FG for this recipe is about 1.010 for 6 gallons, or 23L. Cooper's yeast is high

minutes left i...

@ 1.50 quarts per pound of grain, that's 1 1/2 gallons (USG) for the 4lbs of grist. Crushed of
course. Then I'd sparge with 1.5 to 2 gallons to get to boil volume of 3-3.5 gallons. Sparge
