Sorry, missed your question earlier. I went from 1.068 to 1.013. When I first gravity checked it it had stopped at 1.018, which is what I wanted, but then after dry hopping with leaf hops and gently...

After about 40 flawless batches on my electric rig, I burnt up my first element a few weeks back. It was also in the HLT, and happened during the sparge, but I can't blame it on anyone but me since I...
