comment Does it make sense to steep wheat in cold water as it is heating up?
Yeah, with so little wheat it wouldn't make a big difference.

comment Why doesn't the Brulosopher Quick Lager Method produce esters and other off flavors?
Keep in mind that this is nothing new. Narziss wrote about it in his classic text from the 1800s. More recently, Kai Troester wrote about it at braukaiser.com. Marshall has just rediscovered the wisdom in the technique. I'll also pint out that the yeast you used almost never throws diacetyl and is about the easiest lager yeast to work with.

comment Why is my O.G. less then what I calculated?
I just looked at your process. I can pretty much guarantee you that's what happened. It's happened to me and thousands of others. Basicall, if you're making a kit, use all the ingredients and end up with the volume the lit is made for, there's no point in taking an OG reading. You WILL have what the kit is designed for.
