Definitely sparging a bit more than you need to, but I wouldn't worry about it too much. No irish moss isn't a particular worry, either.

Trust me, I stirred a plenty when I added it in and tested at 160. It seems like I've had some calibration probs with this hydrometer in the past though. I always use ProMash for temp conversion and...

Check my sig. It's pretty freakin good and cheap. The drain is recessed in the floor so it drains like a champ.

I usually try to cool a little more before I take temp, but I'd missed a couple measurements due to company. I'm disappointed in my eff though, ridiculous....

Crazy hydrometer readings

Okay, I've been doing this long enough that I'm pretty sure I know how to read a hydrometer, but yesterday's session confused me plenty.

I made a Pecan Wee Heavy last year (Wrath of Khan) and there certainly wasn't much head and I don't think it had enough pecan flavor. Something wasn't right about it, but it was worth a try. I'm...

Classic look, makes me feel like I'd be cracking open an historically tasty beer.

I hate ProMash...

Yes, it's true. It never estimates the infusions correctly, for me at least. It may get you to the first temp, but on a stepped mash it's off by miles.

For example:

10.71qts at 141 to get to...

I like the smaller batches once you reach critical mass of beer and want to experiment before wasting 5 gal on something. I'll do 2.5g batches instead of 5s once I have a fat stockpile, kind of nice.

I've warped a cooler once, but thankfully it wasn't my MLT because if the floor of the cooler is warped, I'm boned using the copper manifold. I use hot tap, but not full heat, just a shade under,...

I like copper manifolds over braided lines, but that's me. Maybe it's the level of pita work that goes into it :)

I'll second the hop bag. Maybe the utilization isn't as good, but it's gotta be a bit below my threshold. I whilpool after and wind up with much less sediment than in the old days.

I'd take a look in the recipe section of the site first and there are plenty on other sites out in the 'internets' then post your recipe and gather some constructive critique.

I'm doing the very same thing on a wee heavy. Your second step-up will be more than a quart so make sure your vessel is the right size. I use 2qt milk jugs and they work great for the step-ups. Start...

Honey added to the boil, even at flameout is almost entirely consumed by the yeast unless it's over a few lbs. I've done a half dozen honey wheats for that very experimental purpose. I've found that...

I hear you. I could probably grab a couple Sammy winter 12-packs if things don't smooth out by then. I knew it was a stretch and it's definitely going to be a tasty one, just needs another month to...

If you want another 1% abv, get some 1% alcohol boost. Adds the punch without throwing off your flavor profile. AHB has it, tried it once, seemed to work out just fine.

Once fermented, your beer cares a bit less what's dumped into it. You could put it in with your priming sugar to get things all mixed up nicely, probably be fine.

Either should work, but you'll find most people use dextrose. Save that DME for your starters.
