Partial Mash with too much water?
Trying to track down why my OG was low. The first time I did this recipe it was a Extract with specialty grains. I decided to substitute 2-row for some extract.
3.3lb LME - added at 15 minutes
1.2lb DME - 60 min
2.2lb Pale Malt 2-row
0.75lb crystal 40L
0.5lb Crystal 120
Used 2 gallons water (AHS suggests 2 gallons - I know about other measurements but . . . . it's worked GREAT in the past)
Strike temp was 162.
Mashed at a nice even 154 for 45 minutes.
I mixed the final wort pretty darn good so I believe I had a nice even mix.
PH taken during mash was off the sale high (what would a high PH do??)
What WOULD too much water do ???
OG was suppose to be about 1.054
Actual OG was 1.044
