Doing 1-Gallon BIAB batch of this recipe:
Malts and Fermentables:
Pilsner Malt- 0.91lb
Wheat Malt- 0.91lb
Honey Malt- 0.18lb
Special B- 0.18lb
Strike temp 157
Mash temp 153 for 1 hr
Mt. Hood- 0.18oz @ 60 min.
Boil 1 hr
Wyeast 3068 - (Per Mr. Malty- #Vials or packs needed without starter: 0.5)
Target SG: 1.057
My SG (after adding any top off water mixed thoroughly with wort): ??? (still boiling)
I noticed that the strike water temp might've been a degree too high. Once I added the grains, it only dropped to 154. Further, after 1 hour of mashing (in a closed oven turned off, wrapped in towels), it seems like I was only at around 151-150.
I also compensated for the fact that no matter how hard I try, I always have too little wort, so this time, even though I calculated 1.87 gallons needed, I used 2. With 10 min. left in the boil, it looks like I'll have extra wort.
