    Oh yeah, I wasn't really looking for anything, just making a point. Thanks though.

    Was being cheeky.
    I use the preboil/conversion logs as a indicator only as to how I'm tracking on brew day. To be honest because i use a hydrometer I don't usually find out what my pre boil gravity was untill half way through the boil anyway because it's cooling in the feezer ha. If it's off it's off I just roll with it and adjust if need next brew through.

    What's a couple of gravity point's anyhow i aint gunna taste it :rolleyes:.

    image.jpg Another small batch of Herm’s Pale Ale (IPA) in the fermenters, pitched with my harvested yeast slurry from yesterday’s bottling session. There is my bag of spent beer grains, ready for use in expanding my waistline through baking

    Grab a wide mouth Mason jar, place your beaker inside the jar then fill the jar with Ice cubes and water. The ice water will pull the heat from the beaker faster than the air in your freezer....you'll be at reading temp much faster and no running to the freezer!

    Whatcha make with the spent grain Herm??

    Drilling was easy, used a step bit. Drilled it at the spot they have marked out for this one. After it all settled the trub is right at the base of spigot so next one will be an inch higher.
