So after mash and brewing yesterday, I'm cleaning my equipment, and realize the thermometer I use for mashing is reading 13* too high.  Which means my mash wasn't at 150* like I thought, but more like 140 or lower.  I was wondering why my efficiency was down. Should've had a 1.090, wound up with a 1.070.   
I mashed with 12# Belgian two-row, 1 # Caravienne, and 1/2# aromatic. (Also added 2# turbinado in boil)  I mashed for 90 mins at what I thought was 150*, but like I said, was probably 140* or lower.
What are the possible effects on this batch of beer? What should I expect it to taste like?  Any help is appreciated, and thanks!

Been awhile since I been to an SCA event... Need to dust off my staff and bracers and go to one soon!  Congrats on the others liking your beer!

Bottled a Biere de Guarde last night, (yes, the recipe featured here a few weeks ago) racked my tripel into secondary to make room for todays brew: another tripel, slightly different grain bill and hops schedule.

I'm excited to do my first all-grain batch, hopefully this weekend!
That's great! Good luck, happy brewing!  What is your first all grain brew?

Subject line of this one sounds like something Lou Holtz would say

Though I'm not sure what her basis of comparison is, I was quite proud she would try some of my beer!  Thanks Gramma!

Maybe 87 years of life experience?

That's as good as any ribbon or medal you could ever win in a competition!  Congrats!
I totally agree! The best compliment I've ever gotten!

So I am at a family dinner tonight, and I brought some of my tripel. My 87 y/o grandmother, (who has NEVER before tasted alcohol) picks up my glass, asks "Is this one of yours?" and proceeds to take a healthy swig.  Flabbergasted, I couldn't even respond when she pronounced it "Pretty good." Though I'm not sure what her basis of comparison is, I was quite proud she would try some of my beer!  Thanks Gramma!
sweet!
I know, right? It really moved me that she would support me me in something she doesn't agree with.  But that's what family is all about. Love my Gramma!

How about when there are numerous replies to one posting, that it only shows once on the main page, instead of every reply, taking up space for just one topic...

The comercials never mention bacon. Juice, taost, and milk only. That, my friend, is why I never eat cereal. (besides the occasional box of Cookie Crisp, with a half gallon of chocolate milk. Yes, in one sitting.)
Careful, Weaze, or you'll have to buy bigger kilts!

I hope that in the moments before he died, he felt fear and terror, like he inspired in so many before they were killed.

Any one use the Beersmith program? Is it worthwhile? Pros/cons?

No TAP, there's an unseen edict in one of the AHA's directives that makes sure the first issue that is sent out goes to me.  ;D
:D

I joined the AHA in February, and haven't received ANY issues of Zymurgy...

I just joined in March and haven't received this issue yet.  I keep checking everyday hoping it will be there.  Maybe in the next week hopefully.

Mine always comes pretty late in the cycle and I've yet to see the new issue also.  I know it's hard, but just be patient.
Well, figuring tha I live 75 miles from AHA headquarters, I thought I might've gotten mine aleady.
