All grain
Thanks for taking the time, much appreciated
Everything went well during brewing? Mashing held the correct temperature, not too high?
Trying to find a reason for a consistent high gravity. Have you checked you hydrometer? Should be 1000 in pure still water.

Yup. I've had a high mash temp before and had that explained to me. Mash temp this time was as close to perfect as I've had it, and hydrometer is as expected in water at ambient 20c ish.

Seems Morton is a rookie afterall ;)

It seems to have budged a bit. I will see what happens in a couple of days

Thanks for your input.

Yeast is dried MJ M20 Bavarian Wheat Yeast which has an attenuation of 70-75%
I used the same MJ yeast for a Hefeweizen kit and noticed how fermentation slowed down but carried on creeping down little by little. After 13 days it had gone from 1.044 to 1.014 and eventually finished at 1.010 after 19 days. I fermented mine a little higher at 24°C.

I know your brew is all grain compared to my kit but thought I'd give my experience with the M20 yeast. Others on this thread had a quicker experience with it though: Mangrove Jack's M20 Yeast

Great info - nothing like hearing people's experience with a product - thanks
