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.

 

24lb 2-row

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)

Just had a pint. So nice in such a short amount of time. One of my wife's favorites, too.
You should try it with Lutra.

I don't know if it's from the dry Lutra or what. But my latest BP seems incredibly "creamy". Almost like a nitro.

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???

I could see 65% but 52% is crazy to me

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....

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 :D
