Well first of all we can't say whether a 1.067 estimated OG is correct without having the grains you used.

If your program said 1.067 and you got 1.063 you are fine. 4 points off is nothing.

I'll be doing the exact same brew again tomorrow, so it will be interesting to compare results

Only 4 points lower is very good.

Yeah, you got to within about 2-3% of the correct efficiency. Most recipes assume a 72-75% efficiency, so you have to hit that exact assumed efficiency to get the recipe's exact OG.

So, in this case, the recipe assumed a 72-75% efficiency, and you actually achived somewhere around a 69-73% efficiency.

If you want to bump up your efficiency in the future, either crush your grain a little finer (or run it through the mill twice), use a little bit more grain, or add a mash out step after your BIAB mash.

Good luck!

I hear that, it's what got me out of BIAB and into a igloo 10 gallon. I was burning my muscles and my skin at the same time holding my grain bag. If I didn't live in a rented apt I would have put a pulley on the ceiling to help lift the bag.

Are you doing a 2 vessel system then? How does that work?





Just finished another of the exact same and got 1.063 again

diff mash tho, unintended

164f strike
159 after 5 min stir and cover
154 after 15 min
152-145 after 30 min (dunno what happened here)
142 out

so im guessing holding mash temps in a kettle can be a challenge? I'm making a custom jacket for my kettle

Is there a good alternative to the brewometer that comes with the boilermaker? something I can fit flawlessly in the existing thermostat hole? preferably digital?

What,you couldn't set a collander on top of the BK for the grain bag to drain in? That's what I did...
