I will look you up though when I get back to Milwaukee. We actually stay there for a few days every year. My Mom lives on Waverly over by the lake. We usually catch a Brewer game once a year.

UGH...as soon as I get all cocky about my efficiency, it SUCKS. I got like 65% on this batch, TOTALLY not understanding why. I'm wondering if when I recirculated I bored some holes in the grain. Oh well, looks like I boil longer.

Oh darn. RDWHAHB.

Did you take the corn sugar into account?

YEP...

I should be at about 1.054 pre-boil (without corn sugar), I was at 1.048. I boiled it down a little bit, now If I am still low before flameout I'll up the addition of the corn sugar by another 1/4 lb. No big thang.

The only other possibility is that you are a crappy brewer.

Seriously though, what base malt did you use? Have you used it before?

I used the Halcyon from the recent shipment. I've never used it before.

Plus, it also isn't helping matters that it is drier than a popcorn fart outside right now. Our RH is 23%. I've boiled off 2 gallons in an hour.

Probably not, but I wonder if the grain itself might be a factor? I recall reading that RR uses the "cheap" Rahr 2-Row for Pliney.

The quick boiloff should be a good thing, no?

You're a Bayview native? $$

I work at te firehouse over on Chase and Euclid (1st and Oklahoma) so I'm in that area alot. I might be getting a temp transfer over to 8th and Hayes soon (8th and Lincoln) but we'll see what Admin wants to do. Since they got me out acting out of title all the time anyways and the boss there is going on 120 days of Military leave it would make sense to put me over there . . . but since it makes sense it probably wont happen

NM, she's a East Towner . . . unless she's up on the one up in the North Shore

my 2 cents (give or take a penny), are you using standerdized numbers for the malts? some seem on the high side, i rate crystal at 1.030, and corn sugar at 1.040, i know they are basically means (2-row is like 1.033-1.036) its probably neither hear nor there...just a thought.
