Ha! Exactly. In addition to avoiding over-carbonating, by having some sort of expectation of time I can also avoid the repeated testings, even if they are 12 hours apart.

A lower mash temp is part of it. The roasted barley contributes to the dry flavor as well.

For aeration, I stir the heck out of the wort for 10 minutes. ...
