Hah! Funny that you wrote the equation properly in your question. Keep in mind this will only
work with two identical liquids, ie will not be quite right for mixing water with wort. This is

Welcome to the forums. Assuming you're talking about Portland, OR and not Maine, we live in a
very good place for homebrewing. Multiple homebrew shops are available throughout the area,
give one or al...

boiled your sparge runnings (with the DME), and then adding unboiled first runnings to your
fermenter? If I...
Posted in thread: Determining starter size with OG discrepancy? on 04-30-2014 at 02:34 AM
Their recipe states 75% efficiency and OG between 1.065-1.070. That works out to a post-boil
volume of 6-6.5 gallons. I'm guessing you are fermenting in a 5-gal carboy, so you had 4.75
gallons or less...
