Hey everyone! I brewed my first all grain tonight which was a great experience. I would say that everything went VERY well as i did quite a bit of research before I started and am very happy with the day as a whole.
I brewed the centennial blonde mashed at 153 collected 2.15 gallons of first runnings. I then sparged with 175 water and collected 4.25 gallons of sparge. I had about 4 cups or so of wort left after my boil.
My only issue was that the gravity came out at 1.050 surprisingly. How in the world did i manage that
Any ideas why I could have gotten such a high gravity????
I am so glad to be an all grain brewer!!!
