Hello,

I need to measure the most accurate grain absorption in my BIAB system, but the total grain weight I currently have allows only a regular batch and a leftover that I thought of doing this measurement, only reducing the scale to that.

I learned an equation (initial volume - volume post_mash / grain weight) and I was wondering if a small-scale measurement would give me a result equal to use the normal volume of a regular mash.

Example: calculate the grain absorption using only 100g (3.5 oz) of grain in 1 liter (1 quart) of water give me a usefull grain absorption result similar to a large scale calculation?

Has anyone ever done that?

Thank you.
