My estimated OG was 1.042. My first runnings(just over 4 gal) were 1.055 and my 2nd runnings(about 2 gal) were 1.033 so looks like I'm alright. Doesn't taste off from either portion. :D

Ugh, overshot mash temp

So I made the mistake of using my digital thermometer to measure my mash temps and I overshot and now I mashed in at 170F. How is this going to affect things? Can I let it cool down to 158F and hold...

Great Lakes Nosferatu has a really nice red color to it. It's got a pretty aggressive hop bite to it as well which makes it an even more clever name for the brew. It's just a deep amber stock ale. I...
