Very true! I guess I assumed that y'all had already taken mash temps into account. Keep it around 160 if you want a higher FG. This favors the alpha amylase enzymes and will leave more unfermentables...

80% from your base with some smoked and chocolate sounds like plenty of body to me. You could always use some lactose. Adds some sweetness and leaves it a little thicker in the end.

Sounds like a summer ale style would be awesome; lemon and oranges are good when the weather is hot.

Yeah just like commercial brews down here aren't sold as 40's or 22's. They only come in 32 and something like 20 I think. How this makes any sense I don't know. Maybe regulating out those extra 2oz...

Wow. That's pretty cool looking! What are the different layers in there? You got it in a fridge, are you lagering or just using it for temp control? I've never lagered but I've wondered what using a...

Good ideas. I was wondering about the same thing, it getting stirred up, because the yeast cake looks thicker than usual with this one. I sure would like to secondary at 45 for a little while, but I...

Yes, I did notice that as well. While the yeast was churning around, it didn't have a chance to settle. Once it slowed down, the layering started. Guess that means that the different sizes or...

Why does my yeast look like it's layered?

This is the first time that I've ever used a glass fermenter and I love it. It's been a blast watching the yeast go crazy, swirl around and then settle out. If you look close you can see that it has...
