Made this on monday - first AG.
Mashed in at 159 due to a combination of errors - understanding, process, and calculations - (assuming, of course, that the POS thermometer was accurate). I realize now that I should have added cold water to bring the temp down - live and learn I suppose.
From what I understand - I may end up with a cloyingly sweet beer? My OG was dead on (1.040). Fermentation was a bit slow to start but I think a lot of that was low fermentation closet temperatures.
I have plenty of extra kegs, so wont be dumping this unless it's absolutely awful after 3 months - but the pipeline's a bit dry...
Guess I need to search for decent cheap thermometers...
