Posted in thread: Inconsistent mash efficiency calculations on 06-29-2014 at 03:59 PM
For what it's worth I use the brewersfriend.com brewhouse efficiency calculator. It usually
tells me I get around 72-75% efficiency. When I build my recipe I use the brewer's friend
recipe builder and...

I wouldn't think his water would be contributing to hot alcohol flavors IMO. I'm thinking it

equipment loss if you haven't already. I usually mash at 133- 1.4 quarts per gallon. The other
big thing is that...

else except the Carapils and Chocolate as 90L crystal you would expect, without addition of the
lime, mash ...

Ouch on the little old lady comment. Haha. Good to know it's not that dangerous though so I'll
