Posted in thread: What do I calculate the boil-off from? Simple the pre-boil and after-boil sizes? on 11-04-2013 at 12:49 PM

You could also prime the bottles with honey, instead of corn sugar.

First of all like previously mentioned a finer grain crush will help you the most. While
mashing and sparging you should stir the mash a few minutes before draining. Not 30 minutes
ahead a couple minu...
