Last weekend brewing a basic IPA. Some grain must have gotten under my false bottom, and for the first time, when I went to sparge into boil bucket, all I had was a VERY SLOW trickle. It took about 45 minutes to get all the wort out of the grain. (I batch sparge)
Anyway, also for the first time, I hit my target OG (1.079) without any problems, adjsutments, or such.
Was it the slow sparge? And should I ALWAYS take the 45 minutes?
