    Looks nice. I can never get 70% wit hat large a grain bill. I'm thinking of doing some long
    term beer ageing as well on oak. I've bulk aged wine before, but not a big beer. Do you plan on
    continually ...

    So, if I already got pissed off and pitched the yeast last night, the iodophors will still
    work, right? Yeast won't affect starch...

    That's pretty fancy thinking there BBL. Generally, I would consider that beyond my
    simple-brewer philosophy. but I'm determined to find out what's up. I'll grab some iodine at
    the store today.

    grain crush was normal. I don't think they've changed anything in 10 years or so. The malt was
    Gambrinus. They are from BC, I think.

    Maybe bad 2-row? maybe the oven was hotter than I thought? even if it was at 170, I should have
    gotten something out of the grain.

    LHBS crushed the grain, as normal. I'm not sure the ratio. Never had any other problems out of
    them. If the hydrometer is reading normal at 60f, shouldn't it still be good?

    my hydrometer measures 60f tap water at 1.00and my dry red wine at .990. last I checked the
    wine was in the .995 range, so it's lower than expected, but not .3 points low for sure. I
    think the hydrome...

    I would recalibrate your hydrometer just to make sure. The other problem could be that it wasnt
    mixed well when you added the top off water.I'm not sure I understand you. You mean its
    possible the wor...

    I just rechecked (with the same hydrometer) and the reading is the same. 1.032I've been using
    the same hydrometer for a while, and if it is off, this would be a first. Actually, this is the
    longest I'...

    Hi all, I've done about 7 partial-mashes and my effeciency has been, until last night, pretty
    decent. around 60-80%. Last night, as best I can figure, the effeciency was below 20%. Any
    suggestions or ...
