Water Amounts Calculator
I was over on my water amounts by about two gallons. This was because i used two gallons of water to dissolve my LME into so I did not have to do it in the boil kettle, as it is hard to stir it in the big kettle.
Fly sparged. Brewhouse efficiency was 76.8%
I skipped the 1 lb of DME that I was planning to use, and had calculated that I needed to hit the target gravity. Sure enough, I ended up .004 short. Still, not too bad.
I changed the hoses to my plate chiller, and it is cooling much better now too. NICE!
Considering that I will have 12.5 gallons in my fermentor, the OG is not too bad. Had I boiled off another gallon, it might have been right on the money.
Both of my smack packs were good this time, so that's all I used for yeast. I forgot to use yeast nutrient/energizer in the boil
