 The one time I tried conditioning, I got a big hit in my efficiency. When I looked at the spent grain in the mashtun after I ran off, I could tell that I did not crush the malt very well.  I didn't tighten the gap and I blame that.

I have had similar issues which I chalked up to my acid malt being stronger than calculated on BW. Don't know if acid malt does vary that much but adjusting it down corrected the problem (which would likely correct it regardless of the cause)

So when your half empty, spunded keg has lost carbonation to all the beer that has been poured, how do you push out the remaining beer or just maintain the carbonation in the keg after the pressure has dissipated or equilibrated in the head space?

This was made with my usual method. One decoction but with Brewtan B. They all clear to brilliant but this one is amazing. All the writing is on the back side of the glass.

What would one expect the DO of a glass of German pils to be?
Just got a meter and it read around .5 ppm on a beer I made with Brewtan.

Look forward to reading it.  Doesn't seem too intimidating.

Got my copy of Kunze today. Reminds me of my
old Morrison and Boyd Organic chemistry text in size and volume.

How do add the sauergut?  I have always added it in the mash. Wouldn't that add unwanted starch and husk material into the kettle?

What is the thought process of limiting the boil losses to 10%? Why wouldn't a more vigorous boil devoid the wort of any remaining O2?

Also, if I had a few extra bucks burning a hole in my pocket, which DO meters would be good choices?

Hmmmm.  Got a 38.5 for my mbos Hefe but a 0 for my RIS. does that mean they lost it or it wasn't judged?  It scored a 44 and a 1st place in the first round.........
