Well, it's not the honey. It seems that Alchemy is giving lower sugar extracted for every
grain. Rats. I hate trying to figure this out. But I think I'm shooting for a 25 ibu, balanced
approach to the...

You're right! I just ran the recipe through BrewPal and it gives me 1.052 with the Honey, but
BeerAlchemy gives me 1.042. I can't figure out the disparity! Efficiency is 70% in both

I bottles a couple beers this weekend. A mirror pond clone, a great German Hefe and a bit if a
