Mash Profiles not accurate
« on: November 30, 2010, 09:12:31 AM »
Hey guys,

I'm having trouble with the mash profiles not giving me accurate amounts of water needed for sparging. I have my equipment set to the 7.5 gallon brew pot and 10 gallon mash tun and batch size set to 5 gallons. This is what it gives me for a single light body infusion for 8.5# of grain:

Mash in: 10.93 quarts of water
Mash out: 6.80 quarts of water

That's not even 5 gallons of water! What am I doing wrong?

Preview the Brew Sheet and you'll see that an additional 3+ gallons of sparge water is also in the mix, giving 6+ gallons pre-boil.
