Wow! How did I get this crazy idea? Oh yeah from listening to the brewing network. The brew day actually would have been ok but I didn’t do the prep work to make the day easier. I also got all my volumes wrong so I ended up with three less gallons than I wanted and was slightly high on OG. Dough in was crazy thick. It was like a thick oatmeal cookie dough. We missed the temp and were a bit high but it seemed to be working the way it was supposed to.
We poured in some boiling water to get the next temperature rest and after some stirring hit it right on. We pulled off maybe a quart of wort by squeezing a bag of the mash.
