Hey guys I was wondering how other peoples efficiency is. I use the brewers edge mash and boil with recirculating pump. It’s basically brew on a bag with a sparge. I tend to get inbetween 68-70% efficiency. My last brew day I recirculation arm got clogged and my efficiency was terrible only like 60%. My thinking is this is because this system doesn’t hold heat well and it varies by 6 degrees so when I mash at 152 the heating element kicks on when it gets down to 146 and won’t shut off until it hits 158. Does this sound reasonable for making it so I can’t break 70%?
