No, I would not adjust the hop additions. They are based on your final gravity and balance, not
on the boil gravity.Make note of what Yooper said above. Check your DME and adjust your

I think you are on the right track reducing the base grain. I would not change any of the

So lately I have been only achieving 61-63% efficiency with my 20L. My crush is good with some
