Did you make sure to stir when you sparged? With that much grain, you can get some pretty good
compaction of the grains during your mash drain, and if you don't break them up you end up
leaving a ton ...

Efficiency is always going to take a kit on high gravity beers, the trick is figuring it out
for your system so you can plan accordingly. What was your intended batch volume?Was shooting

The calculator is giving that in the second scenario. But really it's just very simply V1 x G1
= V2 x G2 where V is volume, G is gravity in points.In your case you had 9 gallons of 1.054:9 x
54 = 486....

Did you mill your own grain, or did the LHBS do it for you? First thing I would look at is your

normal re...

Would be cool if that calculator also gave you expected gravity after boil..

values:Wort Volume: 9 GALCurrent Gravity: 1.054Desired Volume: 5 GALBoiling down to a volume
absolutely does inc...

Also this has me wondering. Do you mean that during the sparge you put 3 gallons in and 3
gallons out? That makes sense since you should get no absorbtion loss from the sparge since the
grain is alrea...

I'm not quite following:Unless I am misunderstanding something, what is the difference? Preboil
vs right after the mash are the same readings in my book. Now, if you collected 9 gallons of
1.054 wort,...

My brother and I brewed a Barley Wine last night and we got horrible results with our mash and
I was wondering if anyone had some insight as to how I can modify my process. This has happened
twice now...

Hey everyone! Ok, so I wanted some feedback about what I should do with this beer. I made a
Irish Red that I wanted to be strong and hoppy so I made a grain bill that got me OG of 1076. I
pitched 2 vi...
