    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

    euro-land, the selection is'nt near as good, so i couldn't find one with a built in spigot. now
    i have to...

    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 ...
