Had my first messy and awful brew yesterday

2022.01.16 06:43 tissek Had my first messy and awful brew yesterday

A bit of a brew diary.
First of my Mash/Sparge/Boil equipment, in a way I have a simple setup. It is a 16L kettle with a spigot and in the kettle there is also a 15cm Bazooka filter. Longer filter than that doesn't fit. When I mash I do it directly in the kettle, no bags nor inserts. Then sparging I use a "manual" fly sparge method. Simply put instead of pumps and so on I add water manually. After sparging I empty the kettle and give it a scrub. Then back with the wort and time for boiling. Have a Hop Spider to contain the hops. I enjoy my method and while it is not perfect it so far have worked for me. until yesterday...
Yesterday I wanted to go outside my comfort zone, press the boundary of my craft. Also I like rye.
Malt bill 2kg Maris Otter 2kg Rye malt
And that's it. The attentive will see there are no rice husks. Thought I could do without but SPOILERS I couldn't. I also decided to do a step mash because it is a kettle and I mash on the stove, so why not do some heating.
Step mash schedule Mash in at 55C, 10L water (2.5:1 ratio of water:grain) 45min at 50C 45min at 60C 45min at 70C Mash out at 75C and sparge at 75C, collecting up to 12L wort
I let it take it's time when it came to heating so I didn't do full hours.
The results
An image says more that a thousand words
Pictures taken the morning after, it required that amount of time for the messy stuff to settle down. As you can see there is a lot of mess, even post boil. Don't know how this will affect post fermentation but I may let it rest quite some time along an extended cold crash just to get as much beer out of it as possible.
Gravities After 45min at 50C 1,057 After 45min at 60C 1,092 After 45min at 70C 1,091 (had to dilute the mash) After sparging to 12L 1,058 After boiling 1,056 (10L post boil volume)
So then what issues did I have. First of all the mash after the 60C step was dense, when I took that sample it was a thick fluid. To even be able to heat it to 70C I added 2L of nearly boiling water that I gently stirred in. That did the trick and it was a workable mash. Another note about the heating, I stirred a lot. Don't know how that affects the mashing process, aeration and such. So post mashing I was still pretty happy with the step mash trial. Just need to allow myself to be more aggressive with the heating and make sure it really reaches the target temperatures. Was a bit of a wimp.
Big issue though came at sparging. As mentioned above I didn't use any rice hulls. BIG mistake as I had to continuously remove grains from the filter, if not is just stopped flowing. What I got out was a grainy dirty fluid. And the sparging took it sweet time. To get rid of the worst I ran the wort through a filter cloth and that removed a fair bit. Then a standard 1h boil, 50g Target at 60min and 1ml Portafloc at 20min. Then through the cooler and into the fermentation bucket. Added a bit of water to get the total to 10L
After taking the gravities, and redoing them for the pre and post boil, I ended up with an efficiency of 45% according to brewer's friend. The strange thing is that after boiling it down to a smaller volume I have a less strong wort. Pre boil I had 12L at 1.058 and post 10L at 1.056. It should have gone up. Why it didn't I don't know. Sure there was a bit of really messy wort left in the kettle but that shouldn't do that much.
What I've learnt

I hope you have enjoyed reading this brew diary. The issues I had I think I have a handle on and can solve for next time. But...
Why is my post boil gravity less than the pre boil despite being less volume?

Should I try to ge tro know her through dming her? She’s so cute and totally my type

2022.01.16 06:43 lincsafm Is 1.6m x 1.4m big enough for a walk-in wardrobe?

We have have just built an extension and ended up with a space 1.6m x 1.4m at the side of the en suite in the master bedroom. I had planned to put a built in wardrobe in this space, as in just a couple of rails across with a sliding door, but at the 11th hour my wife came up with the idea of using more of this space to make a walk in wardrobe. It's not too late to do anything about it (the joiner has just done the internal walls), but need to make a decision quickly.
Is this space big enough to have space to walk into? Has anyone done anything similar in a tight space? The 1.6m is fixed but we have a bit of flexibility with the 1.4m. 1.6m would be absolutely the maximum I could go to.

2022.01.16 06:43 amougs I am fucked genetically and there’s nothing I can do about i

Tw for drug abuse ig
this isn’t going to be cohesive since I’m not interested in telling a story. my whole family is filled with addicts. i always knew my life I had to be careful with taking any kind of substances but I always figured since my dad got off booze and shit, I could manage too if anything ever happened. but recently I just learned he never actually fully quit, im so torn up. ive got adhd and severe self control issues already, my life could literally just be over by accident. I could be super drunk at some party and do coke and my life would just be over from there. im terrified substances are going to control my life, and they already kind of do. it’s all I think about sometimes and it’s miserable, it’s getting better. I used to abuse shrooms (just because I thought it couldn’t do anything bad to me) and it fucked with me hard. i just wish that part of my brain that always craves to be drunk or high to get that stupid fucking dopamine release would permanently shut its fucking mouth like it does on acid. maybe one day we’ll have something that can do that. I can barely even handle weed responsibly too lol, thankfully for psychs you can’t really over do it (or else bad thibgs). like I said not cohesive, im just in pain.

2022.01.16 06:43 drmaestro88 The KuCoin Bonus

I'd like to ask a silly question. When I enabled futures on KuCoin, they gave me 8 USD that can only be used in futures and cannot be transferred. So my question is, is this a useful amount to invest or different fees will eat it instantly if you try to use it? I don't plan to use futures at all, as I find it too unpredictable in an already very unpredictable crypto market but I'd like to know if that 8 USD could be used to try a transaction.

2022.01.16 06:43 WrapCorrect How to deal with people that use their massive physical size to their advantage

For example, when communicating they do the clenched fist posturing, slam the table, or come up very close to your head and talk over your head. Sometimes they outstretch their hands in a concave way to envelop you. Or they make themselves look large like a gorilla. Usually, these guys weigh a hundred pounds more than me.
