Hit mash temp of 150 on the nose, however it dropped to 149 30 minutes in and was at 148 at 60 and 147 at 90 minutes. Sparged with 180 water(2.5 gal)stirred well, dunked the bag a few times and let sit for 15 minutes, temp stabilized at 162, stirred and dunked again, drained the grains and added to mash water. Preboil gravity was 1.042, should end up at 1.051 or so. OG came in at 1.052, good efficiency for this medium grain bill. Hit the 5.5 gallon volume spot on. Testing this batch with a larger starter than I normally use. I was about 48 oz or so in two steps. Had activity iin the blow off tube 2.5 hours after pitching the yeast, a good start. Finsihed and bottled on 04/08/13 FG reading was 1.008 unchanged from reading taken on 04/01/2013.and ended up with 57 bottles. The hydrometer sample even flat smelled and tasted just like blue moon, I had one that evening at dinner and it's going to be a spot on clone. I'm sure it'll be a crowd favorite since non-craft drinkers seem to love Blue Moon.
