Did my second AG today. No major issues to report other than a lower than expected sparge temp. I wanted to sparge with 168 degree water, but by the time I transferred it from my kettle to the tun, I lost about 5 degrees. I just need to tweek my process a little to fix that , but shouldn't be a big issue I dont think.
It was Guinness Draught Clone and it looks beautiful.
I hit my numbers pretty close:
Expected OG: 1.036
Acutal OG: 1.038
I think my efficiency was around 81% according to Beersmith2. Could someone help me with the formula and verify that.
Pre-boil OG and volume: 1.028 and 7.9 gals
Post-boil OG and volume: 1.038 and 5.5 gals
My first came in around 70% efficiency. Anything I should look at to keep consistency or is this not that big of difference. Moving to AG was the best move in home brewing that I have made. Though its more work, it is much more fun!!!
