So I have a recipe (Haus Pale Ale) that I calculated 759 total points.
I have 13.25gal to the kettle at 1046. So 46/(759/13.25) = 80.3 % Mash Eff. Much better than the 63% last time.
Post boil I have 11.25gal at 1050. So 50/(759/11.25) = 74.1 %
Should these efficiency #'s not match or at least be very close?
I was expecting 1054 post boil, which would have given me 80.0% which would seem to me like the right answer. I figure the only culprit could be my thermometer. My to kettle reading was [email protected]
(I subtract .002 due to my hydrometer reading 1002 in distilled water) so that gave me the 1046 and I read [email protected]
into the fermenters for the 1050 (still correcting for the .002)
I also got 10gal to the fermenter at 1050 so 50/(759/10.0) = 65.9% Brewhouse Eff.
All in all not bad for my second batch. +1 for the SS braid, worked a hell of a lot better than my false bottom. at 80% mash eff. I'm not sure why anyone would want to fly sparge.
