I did my decoction mash yesterday (man what a long day my single turned into a double because the first decoction didnt raise the mash temp enough) any how this is the third brew I have done on this system and all three times the efficiency was over 90% this is boggeling me since I brewed for about 2+ years before and never did I get numbers like this. am I just calculating this all wrong??? here it is
10# 2 row 36GU = 360 GU
10# munich 35GU =350 GU
2 # 40 L 34GU =68 GU
2 # carapills 34 GU = 68 GU
1 # wheat 36 GU= 36 GU
total 882GU x.90=793.8/12= 66.15 OG
1.066 OG is what I got is this correct or am I drunk
thanks for the help
Hey, Jaybird. 90% is certainly possible, but looking at your grain bill (I'm assuming that's your starting gravity on 10.5 gallons, post boil) it seems high... When I check my efficiency, I use the calculators at tastybrew.com.
the 0.90 in the calc is the efficiency I guess we just get the same answer a different way but its all good I just hope I can keep this eff rate up.
whats the 40 ppg for I dont really get that.
O ya if I can keep it up things are gonna have to change with my recipes though all my old ones will have to be recalced O I dont mind though
how do you like Brewsmith opossed to Promash I am sure there has been a discusson on them both whats your prefferance and why?
