I am doing a cream ale and got the strike water good at 152 for 75 minutes, but when I added my sparge water, after runnoff of strike water, i dump the water in, but forgot to stir everything again. I let it rest for about 15 minutes and then ran everything off. Did I completely screw up? Did not stirring in the sparge water leave a large amount of the fermentables back in the grains? It ran off real clear on the sparge..
It's to late now, but any advice for the future would be helpful.
