All Grain Brewing / Re: fermentability question

So a longer sparge at a lower temperature makes the beer more fermentable?
No, rather a lower mash temp for longer

Quick update...  I pitched them both at the same time.  I really like the way this one came out.  Has a taste of pears, and a slight banana on the nose, slightly sweet, but man does it taste really good!  Might have to try it again...

A difference of .003 is negligible and I certainly wouldn't worry about it. 
+1  My beers are almost always close to the predicted numbers, but rarely ever spot on. My FG are almost always lower than predicted.

Beer Recipes / What would this be?

If I were to enter this in a competition, what would it be?
8# american 6 row
2# munich
1# biscuit
1# rolled oats

mash at 154* for 90 mins

1 oz cascade at 60 mins
1/2 oz williamette at 20 mins
1 oz williamette at 2 mins

I used 1056 american ale yeast on a starter.
Ferment at 67* for 10 days, or until done.

Thanks, entering my first comp with three beers, this is the only one I'm unsure of...

My Grandfather was an airplane mechanic in England during the war, and helped many planes for the D-Day invasion get off the ground.  He knew many pilots and crewmen who never came home.  His brothers, one a Marine, was killed in Guam, and the other a sailor, was killed at Midway. 
Freedom has a flavor, that for those who have fought and served to protect it, the protected will never taste...

My top 3 are:
Styrian goldings, which are typical for the belgian styles I like to brew. I like the subtle flavor, and I think they have good aroma

Hallertau, can't stay away from this one, it's in almost all my beers. Favorite in my wheats.

Tettnang, its a great compliment to both the Styrian and Hallertau. Great aroma

I'm gonna brew an american amber type, similar to fat tire, but a little different.

At least he's a halfway decent drummer.

a drummer?  As a bass player for the last 45 years, let me just say...

That explains everything!

What does a drummer do to park in a handicapped spot?
Leaves his drumsticks on the dashboard.

How do you know the stage is level?
The drummer drools out of both sides of his mouth.

What do you call a drummer without a girlfriend?

As a bass player myself I can't believe you guys missed this one:

What do you call a guy who hangs out with musicians?
A drummer.  (Please, try the veal!!!)
How does a drummer make his car go faster?  He removes the pizza sign!.

Two years ago the brewmistress and I took our kids to the Dominican Republic. The boys had never seen a bidet before, and the younger one came out the first night and announced that the "wierd toilet wouldn't flush right"  Cleaning the bidet was not fun, but we got a good laugh out of it later!  ;D

Why did the blond keep empty beer bottles in the fridge?

They're for the non-drinkers, silly!
