It's 7:20am here in the Left Coast. A nice clear morning (Northern Cali, no smoke here) and looks like it's gonna be a beautiful day. I just got my mash (partial) going for an Oatmeal Stout. My boy is still sleeping so I figure I can get at least part of the boil done before he even wakes up for his morning milk. Is Anyone brewing with me?
As I'm getting ready to sparge, I noticed that my mash dropped quite a bit in temp, how will this affect my beer? Will I end up with more fementables & less sweet beer? The mash started at 153ºF and at the end of the 60 minute mash it was down to 138ºF.
