Mashing hotter is only going to cause more problems if you try this again. If you are correct in thinking that your exogenous enzyme is mostly beta-amylase then it's going to be denatured within...

It seems that no one has mentioned the one definite difference between the two: beer clarity. Sure, it's a small thing and has little to do with overall beer flavor, but when a beer comes out...

You will probably want to put your fruit in the secondary fermenter first, then siphon your beer on top of it. It should mix somewhat as it fills. Most likely the fruit will want to float. When...

Woh! I overlooked your amounts for your grain bill before (too much homebrew). You probably don't want all that black patent, roasted barley, and chocolate malt. Notice how little the original...

Your recipe looks pretty good; Darkness is a great beer. Your IBUs add up to 96.5 from what you posted. 170 would be crazy, though I think that's kind of beyond possible, even for such a high...

It looks like BiaB is pretty well-represented here. I've done BiaB (both partial and full mash) for quite a while, but recently switched to AG with an MLT and HLT setup.

I second this. The online calculators for strike temp don't assume heat loss to the mash tun or the air around it as far as I know. It's usually a good idea to overshoot by a couple degrees and...

It can go either way. I'd say try to strain it, but if it makes it into the fermenter it's not a big deal. It will come out when you rack to secondary or bottling bucket and likely won't impart...
