I may have to modify my recipe slightly due to what I have left for ingredients. a little more chocolate and a little less roasted barley. I may also use C-100 instread of C-80 b/c why not?

so due to ingredients on hand I adjusted this slightly.
4 lb light munich
2 lb flaked oats
2 lb chocolate malt
1 lb roasted barley
0.5 lb C100 (labeled caramel but I treat cyrstal and caramel the same)
some magnum @ 60
3oz Willamette @ 5
total IBUs around 61
ferment on 34/70 this time (last time was diamond lager)

You should try it with Lutra.

efficiency was hurting today. pre-boil (pre-sugar addition too) I was only at 52% :-/

Hopefully I just measured that incorrectly somehow but I'll have some idea on that when I take another reading before going into the fermenter.
That seems really low. I thought you would be at 50% if you did not crush the grain. I am going with operator error.

yeah, I can't see how it really could have happened. crush looked crushed. mash pH and temperature was fine. my pre-boil volume was reasonable. I guess that could leave an error when I measured the grain out???

must have been operator error.
after sugar efficiency was 72% but that's not really accurate since the sugar is a guaranteed win. real efficiency probably closer to what? high 60s? I would think for a big beer that's pretty reasonable. no idea what I did wrong before....

you need and Easy Dens so you can just have the meter calculate it all for you
Posted 24 November 2021 - 01:13 PM
you know I'm too cheap for that fancy gadgetry!
yeast is ready to go. maybe I'll pour off some of the beer on top. maybe....
Posted 25 November 2021 - 05:42 AM
so I did pour some of the stuff out but I dunno if it would really matter. probably less than a pint of liquid in total.
fermentation going strong this morning. I love using fresh yeast
