My last two batches have come up short on the final volume after transfer to the carboy. Short by a gallon!!!!
I use a three tier system utilizing a pump and CFC and thought I figured in enough extra grain and water to compensate for beer left in the CFC and pump when the keggle ran dry, but obviously not.
What is a good rule of thumb for brewing 5 or 10 gallon batches?
Say if I were brewing a "5 gallon" batch but wanted 5.5 in the carboy, with my typical system, what extra percentage of grain and water do I need to add?
Anyone else face these issues.
