On Tuesday I brewed a 3 gallon all grain Red Ale. It was a modified BIAB. Used a big grain bag in a rectangular cooler.
It went pretty good except the OG came in at 1.048 the recipe I worked out on Qbrew stated it should come in at 1.059.
The one issue I did see was that the mash dropped to 147 near the end. I mashed for an hour. Could this had been the issue.
6 lbs of Maris Otter Malt
1/4 lb of each crystal 120 and crystal 40
2 oz of roasted barley
1 3/4 gallon mash
1 1/2 sparge
after the boil and all done did end up topping off with 1/2 gallon of spring water.
Will try another batch in about 2 weeks, hoping for some suggestions to better the next brew here.
