All Grain Brewing / Low OG
« on: January 03, 2014, 01:44:28 AM »
I'm still a newbie, and if there is a rookie mistake, I've made it. That being said, my OG numbers have been consistently 1 to 1.5 short of target. My mash temps are good but have tried not to lift cooler lid too much to keep heat in. Wondering if haven't been mixing water/grain enough and if more often and vigorous stirring of the grain bed would help?

I was given the basic home brew kit as a present for Xmas and have been brewing kits. Feel its time to step up to the all-grain side of the art of brewing. Been looking at mash tuns online and they seem very expensive. Seems I could build one a lot more economically, however, I'm not the most mechanically inclined person. Looking for thoughts on building vs. buying and best coolers to use (ie: round vs. square)
