Hello Fellow Brewers

My question. When measuring gravity of a sparged pre boil to calculate efficiency do you make adjustments to the reading based on the temperature? Because whenever I read the gravity, the temp is in the 80's or higher, so my reading is always lower. So if the Hydrometer is calibrated at 60 degrees do I do a conversion?

My efficiencies are low and I wonder if this is making it seem lower. I am doing a Partial mash.

Thanks

Kev
