I have come to the conclusion that there is something wrong with me or Beersmith (most likely me). I have Beersmith setup for single batch sparges. I am trying to figure out why the mash volume and batch sparge volume are not the same volumes. I have Batch Sparge using Batches that fill, 100%, Use equal sized batches and Drain mash tun before sparging all checked. I brewed a beer this Saturday which told me to at 11.03 quarts which is 2.75 gallons but the batch sparge volume was 5.53 gallons ? why are these so far off ? Or at least why isnt the mash higher than the sparge to account for grain absorption.
What am I missing ?
Thanks in advance.
