Boiled Mash
« on: December 29, 2018, 11:56:06 AM »
New circulating systems used and the sensor didn't register temp.
I turned off heat but took a while to chill down to lower temp. after circulating.
I didn't realize till my mash started to boil.

Now FG is way low.
Any thoughts?

Late to respond...but yeah, raising the grain temps above 180F will denature (aka "kill off, never to return") all the enzymes that are responsible for converting starches into sugars.  You probably got a little conversion while the temps moved through the conversion temps.

About the only fix I could see would be to add enzymes, but I have zero experience with packaged enzymes.

Did you dump it?
