gravity reading 6/11/16: 1.014When this batch was brewed I forgot the strainer inside the mash tun. While the grains were steeping I ran to a couple of stores looking for rubber gloves to use to put it in. As a result, the mash took almost 2 hours.When bottling I noticed the color and body look. We'll see!
