This time it seems I find my refractometer may not be giving me correct FG readings (or at least how I am using it isn't). Now starting to double-check with hydrometer. Will make sure I get a fully stirred sample for testing FG, but side by side samples are 1.030 in refractometer, 1.010 with hydrometer.
"perfect" IPA really referring to mash out and sparge temps - I let them get to high recently and caused bad flavor in beer (tannins?). This time temps will be perfect as possible. Mash initial temp came out a little too high (again) but just barely. Went to lunch so mash actually lasted 104 minutes with final temp down to 145.
Switched to 2 gallon fermenter, with 1.5 gal wort size, aiming for twelve 12 oz. beers with each batch. Also starting with BIAB process as of this session. Mash at 150 for 60 min using Keep Warm oven method (power off when inserting tun). Mash out to 180 degrees. Ended up with 9 qts after boil, instead of projected 8, but in the end the amount was perfect, after racking from post flameout to ice bath and again to fermenter, leaving behind a nice amount of material. Fermentation stuck at 1.035, ...
No sparge. Mash with beta-glucan rest at 104 degrees with oats, otherwise 150 degrees for 1 hour.Numbers seem all messed up on this one. OG is way too low, FG is way too high. Changed mash process after this one to BIAB with dunk sparge which worked much better. FG being high - maybe under pitched? It had plenty of time. All mystery so this one is dubbed MODJ 6/28 on bottles. Primed this one with heaping 1/2 tsp sugar as my last couple with a full tsp seemed over carbonated. 3.65% ABV? We'll ...
Getting calculations from previous sessions more accurate. Step mash, no sparge method.
Started with 2.1 gallons, but after mash, had 1.9 gallons, rather than 1.7. This gives a grain absorption of 0.076 instead of 0.15. Mash thickness adjusted to make sparge vol 0.0 since I am doing no-sparge method for this one. Boiled for 88 minutes, counting 23 minutes in as 60 per chart and boiled an extra 5 min after a final check of volume before the last 5 min hop addition.
Finally have calculator set to my setup - 1 gallon brewing. Hopefully volumes will be accurate this time. Set oven to Keep Warm at 150 degrees until pot of mash went in, then cut off oven.After an hour of boiling, I still had 1.5 gallons of wort, so boiled another 30 min. All boil hops were in already, but still had whirlpool hops to add. Liquid measurement gone wrong? If anywhere, it was sparge volume (maybe 2.5 gal total in kettle?). Maybe my full boil isn't as vigorous to cause 1 gal/hr ...
