I'm trying this on the weekend with your dunkel recipe. An online efficiency calculator showed 2.8% ABV with 70% efficiency. Is this right? I know somewhere you talked about raising the gravity by adding more malt?...or something. Thanks.

Did you factor in the DME? It's a partial mash because it uses both base/specialty grains as well as Malt Extract.

Thanks, that's really helpful. I see 7 gallons for the boil. I was thinking of doing 2 gallons for the mash and 2 for the sparge, making it 4 for the boil....and then topping to 5.5 gallons for ferment. Should be good right? Thanks again.

that'll work great, except it won't be a 4 gallon boil. you'll get about a gallon that water absorbed, so you may want to sparge with 3 gallons if you have a 5+ gallon pot.

That's what i do when i do a partial boil. you'll get less utilization on the hops, but with the low ABV, it'll balance just fine.

i wouldn't worry about it. you will get less hop utilization, but it won't make a huge difference. this is not a heavy beer and the hops are there soley for balance.

you could do a late extract addition if you want, that will help with utilization during the first part of the boil.

you could also increase the amount just a bit and aim for the high end of the range (check out bjcp.org)

i personally wouldn't worry about it, as long as your hops are comparable to what is in my recipe.

what hops are you using, anyway? it'll make a difference with the AA%, pellet/whole, and quantity.

Saaz pellets at .75 oz. I think I will try the late extract addition. I really wasn't specifically concerned with this beer. Just trying to get a better understanding of what's going on. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks again.
