6/11/17 Brew day seemed to go well but I didn't get the efficiency I should have. I think I under crushed my grain, I was afraid of over crushing and getting a stuck sparge. The other thing may be the fact that the grain I used was about a year old. Got it free with the grain mill, it seems to smell and taste ok but maybe it lost some starch convertibility in that time. Also I tried not to get to much brake material in the fermenter and lost more then I should have. This is my first all ...
