I'm decocting like a mo'fo.

Assistant Brewmaster Miles was all set to help until he decided to wanted to study theral dynamics. Being that I already know the amount of time from when a little boy touches a burner till when the screaming ends (2.25 hours per milisecond touch, squared), I let him help his mom inside.

My first AG hefe is coming up soon. I need to dry hop my IPA today, and as soon as the fermenter is empty, an American hefe is going in. Hope yours turns out well, Cheese!

So far, the only problem has been that I forgot to turn on the ball game and I missed 7 innings of a so far GREAT Cubs game.

I'm waiting for my pot to boil now. I purposely used more water than Beer Tools recommended since I've been so short on my first 3 all-grain attempts.

Decocting went well. Smelled GREAT, tasted great. Another benefit of decocting is that you get a nice hot-break that stays in the MLT. This has been a super-smooth brew day.

Oh, I forgot to mention!!! I needed to pick up a new propane tank today so I went to the Depot for their automated exchange machine. I ended up (do to a computer error) getting an extra tank of propane! And no, I'm not honest enough to walk back and return it.

Hmm...

Don't know what happened, but once again I ended up with under 4 gallons of wort. I topped up to 5, and ended with an un-mixed OG of 1.045. There was still some wort left in the keggle. I think I'll need to elevate the keggle if I'm going to get those last couple quarts.

Just pisses me off. I double-milled my grain and did everything right and used extra mash and sparge water. It was on the flame for about 2 hours, 90 minutes of which was boiling.
