this based on my system so yours may vary but i work off 75% expected efficiency,,,for this recipe my grain bill is 15.65lbs. strike water is based on 1.25 water/grain ratio so for me it's 4.89 gallons, then i'll sparge with 4.66 gallons and shoot for estimated pre-boil volume of 7.1 to get my 5.5 batch size b/c my system has a boil off rate of about .75 gallons per hour and .25 cooling loss and .25 trub loss. i've been hitting my numbers really good lately.
so for your system it may vary so it's a little hard to say what your system will call for, hope that helps some!
