    If I counted right I have made 52 batches in 2.5 years. Of those, I count 2 batches that were
    duplicated once and 1 batch that was duplicated twice. That is a lot of different beers. That
    said, I have...

    An approach I use is to buy a few samples of a type of beer (e.g., Saison) and determine if I
    like it before brewing it. If I like a particular brand, then look for the clone recipe. Sent
    from my iPad...

    It wasn't, you obviously had a measurement error since it is impossible to go down in gravity
    after boiling off water. Maybe you had stratification of the wort and were measuring mostly
    first runnings...

    So I just took my OG and it is about where it should be at 1.054. This gives me a brewhouse
    efficiency of 67.4%. So things should be fine. I just wonder why my mash efficiency was so darn
    high?? Oh we...

    It is probably a very dumb error and I will let everyone know when I find it. The only thing I
    did not have control over was the grain weight and crush. Homebrew shop did this, so maybe an
    error there...

    I am not done with the boil yet. The 1.066 was gravity heading into the boil.

    Yep. 1.062 at 87 degrees......

    Hello everyone. I am at my wits end trying to figure this one out. I have a gravity reading
    heading into the kettle at 1.066. My grain bill is 5 lb 2 row, 3 lb Vienna, 2 lb Munich, .5 lb
    of crystal 20...

    When I first started brewing, I was in the same boat as you. That was about 25 years ago. Now
    I'm down to about four tried and true IPA recipes, a porter and a stout. Two to three times a
    year I might...
