sounds like good one duke, what did you do for the buffer?
Did you get some picking lime to raise if needed?

well mixed results.
at 8 am i checked the temp.
it said 163.
but the bottom of the barrel was quite a bit cooler.
so i gave it a quick mix and checked again
needless to say it was below 148.
it was aound 142
i use my own green malt that i freeze and grind
so when i added the malt the mash was to cool.
and the cold malt cooled it more.
so conversion was less then ideal.
i ended up with 1.045.
i let it to convert what it could and went to cut firewood.
returned home and checked it and there was a 2 inch cap sitting on top bubbling away
hmmmm
lesson learned-
1-gonna mash in on friday night so i have the day saturday to tend to it.
2-my malt is gonna have to be ground then left a while to warm up.
3-when i check the temps gonna reverse stir the mash before checking.
the all day mash fooled me
the all day and night mash is not good for me because i can`t be sure when i wake up the temp is gonna be right.
i need to be able to monitor a bit more.
i want to perfect this process so i am not discouraged.
i`ll get it right sometime.
atleast i got something to ferment
