What is Your Efficiency - batch Spargers
 
For those of you that batch Sparge....what is your mash efficiency?? Trying to get a feel for an average efficiency to use in Beersmith until I get some of my own data......

Not new to all grain....and same equipment....but been since last year...and I lost all my data in a computer crash..... :smack:

85%

A lot depends on the quality of your crush. Most people start at 70-75% until they dial their system in

I average about 72% but have gotten as high as 88%

BigJim_inFLA 11-16-2012 11:12 PM

Started in the mid 60's but after a few brews I am consistently hitting 82-85%.

usually around 75%!

I use a toilet supply braid inside a cooler mash tun. I hit about 82-84% every time. That is with the crush that Northern Brewer sends in the mail.

This for me also.

I'm in the 80-85% range but I started much lower. Getting to know my system and especially getting my own mill bumped up my numbers tremendously.

3 brews identical to above and I get 78% (as high as I want it!). Hit your temps on well-crushed grain and your efficiency should be good!

I use a bazooka screen and crush my own grains with a Barley Crusher mill. I get a consistent 81%.
