I had my pilot brew yesterday. Couldn't post about it until now due to my other hobby taking up most of my day...
It was like a small victory seeing the wort circulate through the hoses since this was my first all grain effort, and second time overall
And seeing the mash
Underestimated my boil off rate, so I only got between 4 and 4.5 gallons. Hopefully I'll get that fixed for next weekend brew. I think my efficiency was about 84%. I pitched the yeast at 4 in the afternoon. Started seeing a little activity by 11. This was this morning at 7
