    Weird OG readings with topped-off extract wort

    Has anyone come across this weird OG issue with topped-off partial boil wort? Just brewed my second partial boil extract batch yesterday. I chilled my concentrated wort and added to glass carboy (2.5 gallons) and topped it off with water getting it to 5 gallons. I aerated more by...

    Are two stockpots filled to 2.5 gal as good as a full boil?

    After reading about how full boils are better than partial boils, particularly in terms of hops utilization and flavor, I'd really like to take advantage of it. I have an approximately 20 quart stockpot and a 16 quart pressure canner (that can be a pot without the lid, naturally). If I split...
