Beer Fault List provided by the bjcp. Useful to have. Especially if you can't put into words an

Yep, a week later it's at 1.011. Raised the temperature a few degrees for a few days, not sure

Hello,I'm currently doing an English bitter. The OG was 1.047 which gave me a partial mash

Will a longer mash time increase my efficiency? Is there any downside to longer mash times,
other than the time spent?The difference is negligible. I've looked at experiments that did
side by side mas...
