I'm wondering if there is a table for wort gravity relative to the ratio of water to grain in the mash when pulling out the first runnings. I'm curious as to what the limit for the gravity would be. I don't think you can go much less than a quart per pound or the mash is just too thick.

I should have just googled it first. I got it from here http://www.braukaiser.com/wiki/index...ing_Efficiency


Table 1 - Extract content or gravity of the first wort based on the mash thickness. 100% mash efficiency, 80% fine grind extract and 4% moisture content of the malt were assumed for the grist
