Started all grain brewing but my starting gravity has been consistently each different recipe. What am I doing wrong?
Making 2.5 gallons
Mashed 6lbs grain in 2 gallons of water between 143-155* for 1hr 10min.
Pulled grain bags(2) and placed in bowls, poured room temp. water over to get all juices out and put back in pot.
Brought up to boil and boiled for 60min adding hops and flavor agents a varying times.
Took of burner and placed in cold water bath
Brought temp down to 90* in 15min and poured into fermenter
Added cool water to bring batch up to 2.5gal.
Stirred and took hydrometer reading-1.022 @ 78*
Ok, how many things am I doing wrong? Thanks for any help.
