I keep running into this same problem and would like some feedback from the HBT community on what's going on here. I am on my 3rd batch of beer. So far an Amber an IPA and a Porter. All batches we have done a full 5 gallon boil in a10 gallon pot. We use a bayou banjo propane burner. We have brewed all recipes as extracts w steeping grains. We have pretty much followed directions as written or as prescribed by our LHBS. So fare have had to add at least 1.5 Gallons and as much as 2.5 gallons to our final wort because we lost a lot of h2o in the boil. Is this normal? Are we brewing the beer at too high of a temperature? Are we boiling too much h2o should we boil 2.5-3gal instead of full 5? Any tips tricks or suggestions would be greatly appreciated...
