Speckled Heifer is on day 4 in the fermentor. Camera refuses to show how light the color of the beer actually is.
The partial mash recipe contains 3.0 pounds of grain. I mashed with 1.25 gallons of water. A ratio of 1.66 quarts per pound of grains. Mash run off had an SG of 1.066. Volume collected was 3.5 quarts.
I dunk sparged with 0.5 gallons of water. SG was 1.033. Volume collected was 3 quarts after squeezing the bag.
Did I error here with the amount of sparge water. Should I have done a second dunk sparge to get closer to a SG of 1.010? A refractometer would have been handy here. Took too long for the samples to cool for checking with the hydrometer.
The OG in the fermentor after topping off and massive aeration was 1.046. Four points over the estimated recipe OG.
