By the time i woke up ~8am and checked, the fermentor was bubbling nicely with a wonderful aroma.

A few questions: When I sparged with ~170dF water my temp probe said 205dF in my Igloo 5gal TUN. Is that right? I think I need a new temperature sensor. Also, my OG was 1.0645 corrected to 59 dF when I pitched making my effeciency 83%. Is that possible? If so, maybe next time I'll only use 8# 2-row.

I'm excited to drink this one...

Re: 205dF in your mash tun.. I question your thermometer.. Can you or have you calibrated it recently? Calibration is easy with some boiling water.. it should read 212 dF at boil (unless you live in Denver) If yours can't be calibrated I'd think about replacing it with one that can be. With regards to your efficiency.. Sounds like you might have accidently pulled off a mashout with that high grain bed temp reading. A mashout will definitely raise your efficiency. A mashout is where you raise your mash temp at the end of the mash to around 160-165 dF. In your situation, rather than adding more hot water to raise your temp, try drawing off some of the mash liquid and heating to a boil then return it to the mash, before you set your grain bed with a recirculation step. This will take a little experimenting to get it dialed in, but itís worth the effort. This will help to liquefy the sugars you just converted and aid in you sparge, thus raising your sparge efficiency. You are right with your comment of using less grain to get the same OG results. You didnít say what your target OG was so Iím assuming it was lower than the 1:065 you ended up with. However, as I always sayÖ Good beer begins at 1:060!

Good luck with your batch. Keep the faith.

Just bottled my half batch of this. Tastes like it has some real potential.

We'll see in three weeks.

I made this verbatim to the original recipe and just transferred to the secondary after 14 days. I am going to leave this for another week or two before kegging but I can't imagine it improving much in flavor. I am sure I'll make this one again.

Gotta give props where props are due. I made this 3 months Ago and entered it in my first competition today. Text from the owner of the beer garden. ....... The certified beer judge awarded your nut brown 2nd place in the specialty category out of 37 homebrews. Congratulations on a great beer. You can pick up your medal when you get a chance.
