Bad crushing responsible for 55% eff. ????

What went wrong? Was this supposed to happen? Should I throw it out? What do I do now?

Thanks for the reply.

I'm glad to hear my techniques are good, I was kind of concerned and discouraged.

To answer your question about the wheat, there was 50% german pils, 50% malted wheat (almost uncrushed...) and 1lb of wheat flakes.

The beer seems to ferment well and smells awesome. I tranfered to the secondary after 7 days and acticity increased (like a new primary). It has been 24 hours and bubbling is still steady, I think and hope it will get down soon for secondary.

I will try another recipe next week, this time no wheat, just crushed malt and some flaked rice. I will then have a better idea of my real extraction rate.

I will keep some DME just in case I need to boost the OG.

Thanks a lot !

If you are considering adding DME why not just throw 25% highly-modified (North American) two-row in the mash. The enzymes are SCREAMIN in those things and will give you a big boost all around.

Cheers,

Thanks for the advice,

I will try without DME for the next batch, to know exactly my natural extraction rate, I will then see if I should use more grains in the future to achieve the target OG.

I'm pretty confident about the next batch, I will try to sparge more slowly and to correct the pH with precision, and I'll be really careful about heat loss and keeping the exact temp for the conversion.

I'll let you know,
Thanks again Charlie,
