It is very tough to mix wort and top off water - like others have suggested your best bet is
probably to measure your postboil gravity and then calculate the dilution. If you ever move to
an aeration ...

Why can you not move to all grain in your kitchen? I've been doing all grain in my kitchen for
years. I happen to be blessed with an electric stove with a very high output burner but if you
can boil 3...

Thanks for the resource. I'm not currently sure of my post-boil volumes because my kettle
doesn't have measurement markings on it, and I don't know what the exact evaporation rate is,
but that's good ...

IL1kebeer - I don't know what the preboil gravity was; it's not a reading I've ever taken.
Because I add extract and top-up water later on, I've never felt like that reading would do me
much good. Als...

So I guess you can't really call this a "problem" per se, but I brewed a winter warmer style
beer today that should have come in around 1060 (according to Brewtoad,) but actually measured
at about 107...

Ah, yes! Great suggestion! Maris Otter would be a much better base malt. I also might forget
the sucrose/honey altogether and use some extra light DME instead, since I'm assuming all the
sucrose is go...

Thanks for the input. Yes, I'm used to just tossing steeping grains in with mashing grains, but
the way it's written currently I'd only need to steep. However, as I said, I'd like to reduce
