1.061. Sorry, I just realized I didn't even use the same yeast. So not really that same. Regardless, yours should be lower than that after that long. Gently swirling the fermentor has helped me in...

That's pretty high. You're not reading the FG with a refractometer are you?

Mine was down to the final gravity of 1.013 after 5 days so it was even sooner since that was the first time I checked...

I don't know enough about recipe development to say for sure it wouldn't work, but I did have my doubts and that's why I only did a 1 gal batch.

And I did end up bottling about half as is and then...

This was asked and answered in the brew science forum recently (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f128/mash-ph-over-time-does-drop-484454/#post6272921):So I don't think that's enough to worry about.

I've only ever used an immersion chiller with a pre chiller so I have no way to compare an IC without one. I'm sure it helps at the end, but it still took me forever when I brewed this week.

Thanks for the info, but does the pH really change that much throughout the mash? What I've seen recommended here is to measure at 15 mins. I think the pH was actually 5.63 (target of 5.45 at room...

So I went ahead and brewed as I posted above. Hopefully it turns out okay. Everything went pretty well except my mash pH was 5.6 when Bru'n Water predicted 5.45. I did add additional acid to bring...

I'm brewing my second attempt at this. I'm brewing it exactly 1 year to the day from the last one.

The last one I didn't add minerals, wasn't controlling for pH, didn't have all the hops and...

Just to let you know it is out there every once in awhile. I know Cappy's in Loveland has sold it and I got it on draft at Neon's once.
