    Mash and sparge water question

    Brewing beer soon, recipe calls for 11.25 gallons mash in water and then 8.75 sparge water. Could I just do 10 gallons for each? My mash water pot only holds 10 gallons. Any negative consequences doing it this way? Thanks!

    10 gallon batch recipe help

    Would that be as easy as just using the two different yeasts? Could I just follow an Am ipa recipe and use a belgian yeast on half? If so, that's all I need to know! Thanks.

    Stuck fermentation

    Thanks for the advice, took another reading this morning, still at 1.030. What are my options? I'd really like to try to get the last couple points outta this beer.

    Stuck fermentation

    So, I went ahead and purchased the mr malty yeast app. When I enter my numbers it's telling me that I need 277 billion cells. Also I see that I need 1 vial in 4.25 liters, is that meaning I need to make a 4.25 liter starter with one vial of yeast in order to get to the 277 billion cells needed...

    Constantly getting lower than expected OG and FG, help!

    Could this be the issue? So I start with 3.5 gallons of water to boil, after 60 minutes I end with about 3, then top off with an additional 2. So that totals 5.5 gallons. Is this my problem?
