Mashing with ~2.6 gallons of campden-treated tap water. Will rinse the grains to get up to my target boil amount, or however much I need to feel like I've adequately extracted sugars. Mashed in right between 152-153F. About 30 minutes in, I added heat to bring the mash up over 152 again. After ~75 minutes of mashing, I raised the temp up to 164F and will let it sit there for an additional 10 minutes. I made a small starter for this beer. It's not a big batch, but it is pretty strong, and I just ...

OG 1.053 FG 1.013 ABV ~5.25% Apparent Attenuation 75%. Seems on the low side for attenuation, but I gave it more than 2 weeks in the bucket before bottling. Mashing with ~2.5 gallons of campden-treated tap water.Will use enough treated water to rinse the grains and get me up near my boil volume. I've created a 500ml starter from the bottom harvest of my previous Lutra Pseudo Lager. Mashed in right around 152F. I was not particularly married to a strict rest regimen this time, so that will work ...

A little bit of that is some extra distilled water I had sitting around. The majority is tap water treated with campden. I have ~ 2 gallons of treated tap water for sparging. It's going to be difficult with a batch this large, given the sizes of my pots, so I will be messing around with additional pots where necessary. Mashed in right around 150F after some ...

I added a little heat at the 60 minute mark and then let it sit another 15 minutes for a total of 75 minutes around 150. Then I started draining the grains and rinsed them with some ~166F water.

OG 1.072 FG 1.016 ABV ~7.3% Apparent Attenuation ~78%. I've brewed over 10 batches of beer with kveik, but I've mostly treated it as I would a more typical brewer's yeast. This time, I'm going to experiment a little with my methods, focusing a little less on precision and more on just achieving a good result that I can hone over time. For example, I'm going to use as much mash water as is convenient and then just boil longer if I have to (something that might have stressed me out with other ...

OG 1.055 FG 1.010 ABV 5.9%. Mashing with about 2.5 gallons of water. ~.4 gallons of that is distilled and the rest is tap water treated with campden. This is significantly more water than I usually mash with, but I'm testing it out. Not sure what it will do to my pH, since I'm using less distilled water by ratio than I usually do. The grain amount and projected OG are high enough into the middle of what I'm shooting for that even if efficiency suffers this time, it should turn out alright.I'll ...

The wheat and CaraHel are Weyermann.Mashing with about 1.75 gallons of water. ~.5 of a gallon of that is distilled, the rest is tap water treated with campden.Will "sparge" with about 1.5 gallons of water. Most of that is campden-treated tap water. A small amount (maybe 1/8 of a gallon is distilled). Mashed in around 150F and then slowly added heat until it was a degree or two higher. I thought I ...

OG 1.054 FG 1.008 ~6% ABV Apparent Attenuation 85%Pale and Pils malts are Dingemans. I'm using Chateau Cara Gold malt in place of the "caramunich" because that's what the store had and it was roughly equivalent. Mashing with about 1 1/3 gallons of water. About .25 gallons of that is distilled and the rest is tap water treated with campden. With "sparge" with a little less than 2 gallons of campden-treated tap water. Mashed in around 150 and then added some heat until it was right around 152F. ...

OG 1.057 FG 1.016 5.38%. Mashing with ~1.65 gallons of water. ~1/3 of a gallon is distilled, the rest is tap water treated with campden. Will sparge/rinse with about 1.5 gallons of water. ~1/2 of a gallon is distilled and the rest is campden-treated tap water. Mashed in a little hot, so I had to add a couple splashes of distilled water to get it down to between 153-154F. About half way through the hour, temp had fallen to around 150, so I added heat and stirred until it was up between ...

OG 1.054 FG 1.011 ~5.6%. Since I'm only using Pilsner malt in this beer, I decided to spring for the fancy Weyermann Barke Pils. Mashing with about ~1.5 gallons of water. ~1/3 of a gallon of that is distilled and the rest is campden-treated tap water. Will rinse/sparge with about 1.8 gallons of water. ~1/3 of a gallon of that is made up of distilled and filtered water. Trying to make the water a bit softer at every stage for this one. Start of mash right between 152 and 153F. This yeast is ...

Mashing with about 1 gallon of water. ~.25 of that is distilled, the rest is tap water treated with campden.Will "sparge" with about 2 gallons of water. ~1/3 of a gallon of that is distilled, with the rest being campden-treated tap water. With such a tiny amount of water and grain the mash temperature was all over the place at the start. Likewise I anticipate that it will cool relatively rapidly during the hour. I managed to get it somewhere around 154 for the start. About half an hour into the ...

OG 1.056 FG 1.012 ~5.8%Two slight ingredient tweaks from what's listed in the recipe:The hops are 5.8% AA, but that should make about a couple of IBU's of difference, tops. The yeast I'm using is Omega Lab's Kolsch II (OYL-044). Its attenuation is very similar and I think the strain might even be sourced from the same original. Mashing with about 1.5 gallons. ~.25 of that is distilled and the rest is campden-treated tap water.Will "sprage" with about 1.75 gallons. ~.25 of that is distilled and ...

Will sparge with ~1.75 gallons of water. ~.25 of that is distilled with the rest being campden-treated tap water. Will pitch this wort on the cake of my previous pale ale. We'll see how that goes.This is the first time projecting a more reasonable 70% efficiency in a while, so I'm eager to learn if it's warranted. Mash didn't start off great. Was initially ...
