    Actually, I got up to 1.086 with efficiency in the 60's by using pour-over sparge, with almost
    20 pounds of grain in a 10 gallon pot for a 5 gallon batch. It is true that you are quite
    limited if you ...

    So I changed my calculator to use the .08 instead of .2 for absorption rates. Left my starting

    So, I had to dump the 13 gallons of wort. They were rancid after work. (the other day not
    today) So I went and bought both grain bills again. I remade the Good Life Pale Ale. Its
    -sitting in the prima...

    @texaswine you probably left the trub setting at .5 instead of a more realistic 1 gallon loss
    from fermenter. My best guess without knowing your exact system details would be a mash volume
    of 15.12~ g...

    Assuming 1 gph boil off and everything else at the default settings, here are the results from
    the pricless calculator. It indicates no sparge is technically needed, but I would personally
    use a coupl...

    Uh oh ! Tomorrow I am brewing a vanilla porter in a 15 gallon megapot 1.2 I am making a ten

    will over flow ...
