Any idea how much gravity would be created in a partial mash batch with


- 3.3 lbs golden light lme
- 2 lbs golden light dme
- 1 lb candi sugar

This question is bugging me.

Just as an aside, you want to add the water to your tun FIRST, and then add the grains to the water. Not the other way around, which it appears that you did.

In a 5 gallon batch, the three items you list above should yield right around 1.049.

With the grain, about 1.080 with a 70% efficiency, or about 30 gravity points from the grain.

thanks!

I need to do more homework on understanding all of this. I really appreciate your time calculating that.

No problem. I entered this into beersmith and then double-checked with brewtoad, and brewtoad agreed very well. It's free and easy to use. Give it a shot (you don't have to create an account but it's to your benefit to do so):

When you heat your strike water make sure you stir it before checking the temp. I made the mistake of not stirring and because the thermometer only probes down 4" my mash temp went high I believe because the water temp at the surface of the kettle was much lower than down near the heat source. I figured convection would stir the water for me but apparently that wasn't the case. Once I figured this out I hit the mash temp much closer.
