Does anyone know if theres a calculator out there that you can tell it you have say a 5 gallon cooler and put in the grain amount and temp and desired mash temp etc but automatically changes the water/grain ratio and temp to fit in the cooler? And also split the sparge as that changes temps too. I know beer smith can do it but does anyone know of anything online? Or for android. I know i can figure it out by factoring volume of grain and absorbtion and subtracting by the max volume i want which is 4.8 gallons. But when it comes time to sparge im lost. Just got terrible efficiency on a 11.75 grain bill because my sparge temp was out of whack. I know some will say get a 10 gallon cooler problem solved, but om poor right now. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
