My bottles sit upstairs in the closet of my man cave. It's 78F up here almost all the time. I'm usually fully carbed by two weeks, but I let it condition at least another week before drinking.

Yeah, but the gravity of my first runnings was 1.059 (and I'm certain of that). It doesn't matter whether that's 2-1/2 gallons or four gallons; there's a problem with conversion.

I don't really have much control over the grind, but I can pick up some Five Star 5.2 for my next mash and see how that goes.
