Why is there such a huge discrepancy between predicted and actual here?

Default barleywine

Recipe looks good. You may get lower efficiency on such a large beer.. I usually plan on 60% instead of 70% when I do a big beer like this. if that is an issue, consider adding a pound or two of honey to get the OG up, without adding to overall sweetness... i.e. honey/sugar will help it ferment out drier.

US-05 is a beast and I've used 2 pkgs in a barleywine like this before. It did well, but allow it to free-raise a bit after primary. I let mine set in the fermenter 4 weeks before kegging. The yeast will take some extra time as that is huge OG and they will get tired a bit. I'd also recommend re-hydrating the packets before pitching.

Finally, use one of the 'can I mash it' calculators out there to see if you can fit al the grains in your MT. Easy to overlook that until you are filling up your MT on brew day. If it won't fit, then consider replacing some grain with DME in the last 15-min of the boil...

Good luck!

Sorry about that ........ I haven't brewed this yet...... With beersmith at least I don't mess with those inputs until I actually brew the beer then I will input my mash pre boil gravity and my original gravity...... About 6 months from today ill start looking at my FG and input that..... Those thy you see in my report are just more for recipe evaluation but, good catch !!!

Amazingly, I only lost 1% of my mash eff. I usually hit 85% consistently today with a 24.25lb grain bill ( I upped my crystal 120 and 60 to 1lb each so it was closer to 10% of my grain bill) I ended up with 84% ( rounded up it was actually 83.7% eff). Very surprised with that big of a bill that I hit such a high conversion. I was a happy camper. Now comes the inevitable blow off from this monster beer which ended up at a OG of 1.104 keep your fingers crossed my ceiling stays clean !!!
