Okay I have created a nice recipe in beersmith.
Its a 6.0 gallon batch. I am shooting for 1.050 starting gravity.
I have my grains all set to get me exactly where I want.
My question is this.
Why when I look at volumes and enter in gravitys if I actually hit those numbers does it tell me I have a 63% effieciency? I set my eff to 68% because I am thinking thats what Ive been getting but maybe I just dont know how to properly calculate it.
I hit my mash temps and batch sparge. I have a nice rubbermaid cooler with false bottom it keeps heat nicely. I feel like I use alot of grain to get good numbers.
