Default No Sparge Question...

When using the no sparge method do you increase only the base grains or increase every grain on your bill?

Thanks!

if your going to do no sparge you might as well batch sparge. Just a suggestion.. it realy does not take any longer. Happy brewing.

actually, it does take longer. it takes the length of the sparge longer. if you sparge for 30 minutes, it takes 30 minutes longer.

Also, "no sparge" has been noted by many brewers to provide a more pronounced malt flavor. So there is that.

Increasing the grain bill by 1/3 is a good place to start. Also, 50% efficiency is fairly common in a no sparge setup. If you want an exact number, use the efficiency that you get from your first runnings during a recent batch.

Most people find no sparge yields them 60-70% efficiency. Enter that into your brewing software and adjust grains accordingly. Generally speaking, you should only adjust your base malts. Efficiency isn't going to change significantly on crystal malts, etc.
