- The longer grain is stored more more potential it has for losing efficiencyTo answer the last 2 replies.
The crushed grain was purchased in early December but has been stored in a cool place since then.
No, the grain was not agitated much.
The mash was between 63 and 68 degrees for 70mins. I had one DS18B20 sensor in the centre of the mash.
i also give the bag a damn good squeeze as well:mrgreen:+1 to what MyQul and chub1 said, more stirring and dunk sparging should help.
Although I can't help thinking these won't make up for such a low efficiency as I know brewers who do neither and still have successful brews. I would have thought they'd make 10% difference at best, although happy to be proved wrong.
