Default Sparge water

I doing a single infusion mash. 155 degrees/15 lbs of grain @ 1.5 qts per lbs. Which is 5.625 gallons of strike water. How much sparge water would I need to produce a 5 gallon batch at a 75 minute boil?

Depends on your boiloff rate and your mash tun deadspace volume.

If you don't like doing the math, you can always use a calculator like this:
