Hey guys, great forum, lots of useful info.
I did my first all grain this weekend and it went well except that I couldn't hit my target mash temp which was supposed to be 154 and I hovered around 152 .. so I just let it go 10 minutes longer than the 60 minutes the recipe indicated .. bad idea?
I did adjust my strike temp but I let my grain set outside with me and it probably was 55 degrees .. so I didn't take that into consideration .. I did try to raise it with some hot water but didn't want to get crazy since it was my first.
Also, I learned that it's easy to go through your previous batch while making a new batch, oops
