I'm not sure if I'm not getting enough O2. I'm thinking about getting a pump to get better O2. Any ideas on why this stopped at 1.016 and not 1.005?
I thought about this some more. Adjuncts don't have a lot in the way of nutrients that yeast need. In an all-malt wort you typically don't need to add nutrient, but when a significant portion isn't malted you could run into metabolic issues for the yeast. If they don't have enough nutrients and trace minerals to do the job, they'll stop early because they simply are no longer to eat any more sugar. There's nothing you can really do at this point, but in the future when using adjuncts you should give them some extra nutrients.

That could be the problem.

Thanks diatonic! I will do just that on the sparge, that is, just sparge til I get my preboil and not worry about over sparging. On the adjuncts, I believe just to be safe since I don't have time to experiment before the wedding, I'm going to drop half a pound off of the corn bill and pick up a half pound on the rice. I want this really clean for folks. Will report back in about 3 weeks with my results!

Is there any reason I couldn't do this in a 5.5 gal batch using bags? I could sparge a bit using a strainer over the kettle. Or just agitate the bags a bit. That would probably get all the goodies out before the boil. Any thoughts?

Update, i went on vacation this past weekend for 4 days and when I returned and poured a glass of this wonderful beer it was very clear. Just a hint of a haze. I also found that this beer has a lot more flavor now.

So I brewed on July 4th, transferred to secondary with gelatin on July 16th, transferred to keg on July 18th and started drinking on the 20th. A little time line for you guys that plan to brew this.

This beer is freaking awesome and is a perfect beer for those people who don't know what a craft beer is and typically like bud light. But it has more flavor.

This will be a beer that I ALWAYS have on tap. I just need to figure out what I can do to make the mashing process easier. I got 3 stuck mashes before on my RIMS system before I just decided to do a single infusion with no recirc.

Alright, brewed it up on sat. Man, between the 90min mash, 90min boil, and dealing with 100deg Memphis temps outside and chilling with almost 90deg groundwater made for one exhausting brew day. I had to go immersion pre-chiller with ice bucket to therminator and still had to use a swamp cooler before pitching! haha. Whew, what a day!

I was in a hurry to get this ready for a BBQ this weekend. I primaried it for 12 days, then filtered warm with a 1 micron filter. Chilled & force carbed for 2 days. Despite having a lot of chill haze, it's a really enjoyable beer. I'll just get red party cups instead of clear. Thanks again for the great recipe!
