Hi guys, I did my first AG batch yesterday, I also chose the famous and popular Ed Worts House Ale. I hit my water temps right, a little bit cold by the end of the mashing. I end up with 1.036 pre boil, not bad considering that Beersmith call 1.038 on pre boil. 6.50g to boil down to 5.5g in 60m. By the end of the boil, I had an OG of 1.040, when I supposed to have 1.051. I don't understand what happened during the boil, I did everything according the recipe. According Beersmith my efficiency was 60%.
I missed pre boil by .002, but after the boil, I missed OG by .011. Any thoughts?
Thanks a lot for your help and time.
