    That makes sense, I guess I need to use a different calculator/do my own equations. I've been
    in the market for a grain mill, just waiting for the funds and the moons to align. Thanks for
    the help, gl...

    Post boil volume was exactly 5 today, not quite the 5.5 I was going for.

    I have done that, and I've found that the calculator I have used is pretty accurate (within 2
    points) of what I get from cooling it down. I will definitely cool it down from now on, though,
    as it will...

    I am pretty vigilant with my temperatures, though for this beer I mashed at 150 so it would be
    a bit drier. Typically I'm around 152, and holding it there consistently.

    My thermometer is quite accurate, got it from my friend who works in a lab and I calibrate it
    with another thermometer before brewing. I'm using 1.3 quarts per pound of grain. I fly sparge

    I've brewed 6 AG batches so far on my new equipment, and have consistently been getting 55%

    report back if the problem continues.
