I'm having a good day. I used the 'easy partial mash' guide, changed my recipes for a 2-gallon IPA recipe (chinook + cascade + cascade whole hop dry hop), and mashed on my stovetop for 60 minutes at 153. I sparged in another pot at 175f for 10 minutes, and this is a picture from the boil.

Ill update with some pictures of OG and my carboy before I shut her in the closet for a few weeks. I liked this process a lot better so far - more time and labor intensive but it feels so great to make beer from just grain, yeast, hops, and water.

Trying to warm my tummy while cooling the beer



Target was 1.06. For my first AG, 1.05/1.06 is great to me. Especially since I have an electric coil range.

At the risk of slightly spoiling your happiness, I have to point out that when you say OG was supposed to be 1.05 / 1.06....
There is a range of .010 between those two values.
In other words, if OG was supposed to be 1.060 and you got 1.050 then there is a slight range there that you missed.
Not a huge deal, just something to point out.

Pre-boil volume was exactly 3 gallons. Boiled down to 2.3-2.4 gallons, and my carboy holds 2 full gallons. Having my PBV at 3 gallons is probably why my OG was 1.05 and not 1.06. Too much sparge water.
