    Brewed a Belgian Dubbel yesterday and as noted earlier, performed a 90 minute mash. I then
    sparged with 180F water for about 15, mixed everything up real well, and got the 78% efficiency
    I got batch b...

    So on my batch this past weekend, I did everything I normally do except I fully drained the
    mash tun instead of stopping when it starts gurgling. No change in efficiency. Still at
    68%.Next batch I'm g...

    I wasn't sure about up or down for the strips. I use a pH meter with automatic temperature
    compensation.Which meter do you have?

    If you've stopped draining before the end before, you've been leaving some of your sugar in the
    mash tun, so I'd definitely that that's a leading possibility.Makes sense. I usually stop
    draining when ...

    PH strips are not meant to measure at mash temperatures. I assume you cooled your sample to
    room temperature and I've read that the difference between mash temps and cool temps is around
    .3. If this i...

    Thanks everyone for their response.Were you only adding these to adjust your PH?Yes, it was
    purely to add more pH buffering with what I had on hand.Perhaps you just need to mash longer to
    get better e...

    **SOLVED**See thread for details.I brewed an oatmeal stout last weekend. It's my third all
    grain brew and my first two landed an efficiency of about 68%. Since this is my first 20+ SRM
    beer, I did som...

    It is funny you say this, because that is the exact OG i had! I also didn't have Beersmith at
    the time, then i trialled it. When i put in this recipe, it gace me a really bad efficiency
    which i didn't...

    I will be brewing this next Sunday, why when I put the recipe into BeerSmith do I get a 1.072
    OG at 70% efficiency and 5 gallons? Is this recipe supposed to be 5.5 gallons? I get 1.065
    then..?Recipe S...
