Looks fine to me. As per usual responses you're likely to get, if you're really worried about
it send it over to me and I'll dispose of it properly. :D

I don't believe you input the correct volume to the BF efficiency calculator. Given your
process, you need to use the total volume of water added before you drained your MLT.Brew on

If you didn't drain the MLT prior to adding the "sparge" water, you didn't actually sparge. You
just diluted the mash in the MLT, which gives the same result as a no-sparge process, but with

If you had ~7.5 in the kettle and it measured 1.044, that's pretty close to 60% efficiency. Not
unheard of, but not great.Unfortunately I have had mixed luck with temperature converted

Pre-boil SG measurement is the likely culprit. You dumped low gravity wort into high gravity
wort. Unless you mixed the wort very aggressively, it was probably stratified. You then took a
sample from ...

So this is a head scratcher. I haven't brewed in a year, but this is really crazy even for
maybe being rusty. I realize I screwed up on using a 6 gallon for the batch and not 5.5, and

You know what, it never really occurred to me to use something other than the flask. It really
should have, but as I was always using DME for starter it was always best to boil it right in

OK, so I probably already know the answer to this, but I'm asking anyway. I haven't brewed in a
