Hi forum, I followed a recipe from a book I bought at the weekend, for a ruby mild it said. Target strength was 5.5%, using 5kg of grain. I ordered my pale malt, 3kg, and saw they had mild malt, so meant to order the other two of that and forgot. I did the brew anyway, and ended up doing an all day mash because I went out and was out all afternoon. Low and behold, the wort is 1053!? Is this witchcraft using an all day mash and getting more value out of your grain? Or is there a price to pay for this efficiency?
