I'm confused trying to do my equipment setup. I watched the videos but its just not computing in my head. My goal is to boil 7 gal and end with 5.5 gal into fermenter then after loss end up with 5 gal to bottle. I punch in the numbers and beersmith calculates it out for me to have 8.26 gal preboil but then says measured preboil is 7 gal with 6.5 gal batch size. Idk. I use a 10 gal cooler with a false bottom and I have deadspace but I tip the cooler until I get all the runnings so my loss is minimal if anything. Plus I pegged in a recipe and it says OG= 1.059 but measured OG= 1.048 WHY the difference. Idk I'm gonna have to do somwmore research.
