How do you determine the right temp? Should everything be brewed @ the same temp or can different temps offer different drinkable results?
My first try at my own recipe was steeped @ 120 degrees for about 15min then brought to a rolling boil for an hour. I put the hops in at different stages and ended up boiling off about a gallon. The whole experiment yielded about 4 gal instead of the 5 I was going for. Now my beer tastes "Worty" Should I have increased the temp? Or is it b/c I didn't compensate for the boil off?
