How should the gravity readings compare:
a) 1st running of batch sparge gravity
b) 2nd running of batch sparge graity
c) pre boil gravity
d) post boil gravity
Should the 1st running be equal to, higher, or lower than post boil gravity (starting gravity)?
I think my first running is too far below my intended starting gravity, then by adding the 2nd running, I am way below and then have to boil off more than I should have to (2 hour boils).
thanks in advance
