inam brewing a Hefeweizen today. Normally, I mash in a cooler, but today I’m playing around with BIAB. My efficiency is through the roof. I was aiming for 7 gallon of 1.038 wort preboil. I actually got 7.9 gallons of 1.044 wort. If I boil the typical 60 minutes, I’ll have 6.5 gallons of wort. My fermentor is exactly 6.5 gallons, so not sure how that will work out. I don’t need a mess on my hands. I can boil longer until I hit my 5.5 gallon target, but my ABV will be 6.6 instead of 5.6. Also, I don’t know how to adjust the hops for the difference. What would you do if you were in my situation?
