So I brewed this last night and I probably messed up at every step. OG was about 1.090 and in the end I only put about 4 gallons into the carboy. Anyone have any tips on how to get more wort? I feel like if I keep sparging to get more wort then my SG will be low and I will still have to boil off to get the right OG. Or how to not have my wort absorbed by all the hops. Hoping this comes out all right since now the yeast and hops, etc are off.

I started with a little over 8G preboil and boiled for about 105 minutes. I use a paint strainer bag when filling my carboy and I had to empty it three times.

What is your efficiency normally? It is not uncommon to have a reduction in it when using a larger grain bill.

My efficiency for this batch according to brewersfriend.com was around 71% which is right about where I want it. Sorry this is only my third all-grain the other two however were almost spot on with everything i.e. mash temp, volume and gravity. It just seems like this beer and the hops swallowed up 1.5G and I had to boil off a little more to try to reach the target OG.

You guys and gals are not pouring in all of the trub in this one are you?

Sounds like your mash efficiency was low. Probably from the large grain bill.

Yup. More fermentables always lowers my efficiency. Just add some extra grain next time to make up the difference.

I had the exact same on my batch, so the suggestions on lower efficiency seem accurate.

Ended up pretty much exactly the same, 1.090 and about 4 gal. Still was a great beer.

Awesome. I remember drinking one of these after a good day hike at the Grand Canyon. Enjoyed it so much, I went out and bought a few more when I got home the next day.

Not sure my setup can handle this brew quite yet, but I'll stash the recipe in my future brew list for when I expand my brewing gear.

Not sure what happened. Only ended up with 4 gal or so in the fermenter. Drunk

Hop heavy beers are a bit tricky to dial down the volume sometimes
