Okay I got meself a nice pot today for my new foray into steeping / mashing, etc.
It is 32 Quarts and so now I am really confused about the sizes... my carboy and recipes I've made in the past say they are 5 gallons or 23 liters. this is UK gallons then, because 5 US gallons is only 18.9 liters.
I guess I need to fill my carboy with liters, and then dump into pot to find out for sure what this pot holds...
I am more confused also by Orfy's Hobgoblin II clone as it states (in the beersmith file) that it is 18.9 liters..... so actually smaller than the typical 5 UK gallons (23 liters) I usually make?
If I make a recipe (like the hobgoblin) based on 18.9 liters, and top up to 23 liters.... would it have a huge negative effect? the OG would be a lot lower than it should be in that case I think, right? so I need to convert the 18.9 liter recipe to a 23 liter recipe so it comes out proper....
lots of stuff, trying to RDWHAHB but im all out of ready stuff so I am RDWHA-rickards. :cross:
