Default calculus said 1.067

I got 1.063OG

biab squeeze no lauter

when i use the beer calc im only entering the grains and hops and making no adjustments anywhere else on the program

is 1.063 decent or to be expected given all that?

Well first of all we can't say whether a 1.067 estimated OG is correct without having the grains you used.

If your program said 1.067 and you got 1.063 you are fine. 4 points off is nothing.

Only 4 points lower is very good.

Yeah, you got to within about 2-3% of the correct efficiency. Most recipes assume a 72-75% efficiency, so you have to hit that exact assumed efficiency to get the recipe's exact OG.

So, in this case, the recipe assumed a 72-75% efficiency, and you actually achived somewhere around a 69-73% efficiency.

If you want to bump up your efficiency in the future, either crush your grain a little finer (or run it through the mill twice), use a little bit more grain, or add a mash out step after your BIAB mash.

Good luck!

I hear that, it's what got me out of BIAB and into a igloo 10 gallon. I was burning my muscles and my skin at the same time holding my grain bag. If I didn't live in a rented apt I would have put a pulley on the ceiling to help lift the bag.

Are you doing a 2 vessel system then? How does that work?





Just finished another of the exact same and got 1.063 again

diff mash tho, unintended

164f strike
159 after 5 min stir and cover
154 after 15 min
152-145 after 30 min (dunno what happened here)
142 out

so im guessing holding mash temps in a kettle can be a challenge? I'm making a custom jacket for my kettle

Is there a good alternative to the brewometer that comes with the boilermaker? something I can fit flawlessly in the existing thermostat hole? preferably digital?

What,you couldn't set a collander on top of the BK for the grain bag to drain in? That's what I did...
