Water volume question
« on: December 26, 2007, 03:55:30 PM »

I will be brewing my first all grain beer tomorrow.  When I went to my brew shop to pick up my supplies, it was recommended I add an extra pd of grain to my 10 lb grain bill.  This was done to make certain I would extract enough sugars and not to worry about not hitting what I need.  Therfore, I will be using 11 lbs of grain.

Brewsmith had calculated that I would need 7.74 gal total water witht he 10 lb grain bill.

Should I continue to use the 7.74 gallons or, should I increase my water as I did my grain?

Increase your water, just change the amount of grain in beersmith, and it should automatically update
