I'll give this a bump, tried this beer for the first time last weekend and fell in love. It's probably the creamiest beer I've ever had. Maybe there are a lot of oats?...

So to be clear then..

If I don't do a mash out, then the first sparge water needs to be hot enough to raise the temp of the mash to 168, correct? Do I need to be exact or does it just have to get...

Mash Out with Single Sparge vs. No Mash Out with Double Sparge

I have a recipe for a porter with 14.25 lbs grain. I'm mashing 4.25 gallons water at 152 degrees for an hour. I'm going to lose about 1.75 gallons to grain absorption, and I want 6.5 gallons in the...

Switched to all-grain a few batches ago and built a kegerator, so I'd say 2012 was a good brewing year for me.

Do you just chuck the sample into the fridge until it cools? I wasn't sure if you can do a temp correct with wort that hot.

It's been fermenting at 60 degrees for 3 days now. The hydro is reading 1.014 and it's pretty much stopped bubbling. Initial tasting is a little bready, but I guess you can't expect it to taste great...

WLP001 on this one, used a starter

If I had low efficiency like this would the beer taste sweet, or do the sugars not even make it into the wort? Would this taste pretty much the same as if I had...

I don't think crush is the issue...I always crush at the LHBS, so the other batches would have had the same efficiency problems. I'm sure the crush could be improved but it isn't dreadful.

The porter is tasting great. The honey ale is super cloudy and has kind of a strange aftertaste. Anyone else get that? Maybe it's just from the honey?

Did anyone convert these to a full boil extract recipe? I've never done that, I'm not sure how the hop additions change.
