10 minutes it held at 166 then got it back to 158. Damn manual control of mash temp!

May as well toss in some more yeast and give it a shot. Does it taste sweet?

It doesnt taste overly sweet. Tastes almost like what a red ale should, not a brown. I think im going to let it condition and throw it on when i have a tap available.
