Yea....I think I've read that before. Does anyone know what the physics concept behind that is?

I'm not sure, but I think its because of the pressure is higher due to the depth of the tanks and because of Gay Lussac's law: http://www.molecularsoft.com/help/Ga...Gay_Lussac.htm

EDIT: Nevermind, that's for a gas.

Well, I'll stop talking about it and I'll just make it. I've bumped this up to my next brew, which will hopefully be this weekend. I've made the suggested changes (and a couple other small ones). I'll probably going to go with the recipe below and will report back after brewday...

Code:
Calculated for 5.25g @ 75% efficiency.

I'm probably going to mash around 152-153*F…
looking to hit 1.013 FG to match the 6.6% ABV.

GRIST - OG = 1.063, Color = 13 SRM
====================================
8.30# 2-Row (67%)
1.25# Rye Malt (10%)
1.00# carapils (8%)
0.75# Simpsons Dark Crystal (6%)
0.75# Simpsons Medium Crystal (6%)
0.40# Aromatic Malt (3%)

HOPS - 70 IBU total
================================
1.0 oz Perle (8.0% AA) @ 60 min (24 IBU)
1.5 oz Amarillo (9.4% AA) @ 30 min (32 IBU)
1.0 oz Amarillo (9.4% AA) @ 15 min (14 IBU)
2.0 oz Amarillo (9.4% AA) @ flameout
3.0 oz Amarillo (9.4% AA) @ dry-hop for 5-7 days

YEAST
================================
WY1056 American Ale, ferment @ ~63*F

So it seems it's because of hydrostatic pressure. There's a big thread about fermenting under pressure to mimic it:

Brewed it today with a couple problems

-mashed a little lower than I wanted at 151
-efficiency was higher than expected. added water to bring gravity down. it was too much - hit 1.056 OG instead of 1.063.
-it also seemed a bit darker than i remember RR being

Either way, it probably won't be that close, but should still be good. I'll post more info post fermentation...

mb, since you are a senior member and I am a noob then I would like your opinion. Remember this was my first all-grain batch and my calculated efficiency was only around 67%. With no experience, i entered all info in Beersmith and followed directions regarding strike water and sparge water. The initial temp of the mash was 160 which I cooled down to the called for 158. The batch sparge temp of the mash was the same. I came up somewhat short on the amount preboil wort so added addtional sparge water about 1/2 to 1 gallon. I didn't measure the temp of this water but am sure it was somewhat cooler as I don't have a sparge water tank. This water was just sitting in a plastic bucket. The ambient temp of the garage was probably around 45-50 degrees. Fermentation was complete and racked to secondary in 4 days and dryhopped sg was 1.011.

My biggest question...how can i improve my efficiency to 75%. I have not been able to find anything in this forum. Thanks in advance.

You should be able to find a lot of info about that here...there's a sticky in the all-grain subforum:
