i was laying in bed last night and realized my error... i had "thought" i was hitting 75-80%
extract effeciency, but my computation was using the "highest possible extraction" as my 100%
value and i w...

What formulas have you seen? There is effciency based on the maximum possible extract from the
grains and there is efficiency based on the total grain weight. Most brewers, if not to say all

i'm interested to know what equation everyone uses to calculate effeciency. i also seem to come

is that to say that all the recipes i read here and elswhere use weights of hops in terms of
whole hops (of course unless otherwise noted)?

ok, i'm interested. i want to eventually go to AG though, and would like to buy a
cooler/mash/lauter tun that would handle a normal 5 gallon batch in the future, and also work
for partial mash in the ...
