No-sparge calculation
« on: May 13, 2011, 05:50:13 PM »
Hi folks,

I have a low-gravity Pale Ale recipe (targetting an OG around 1.035) and I think it would be a good candidate to try out No-Sparge brewing. Can anyone give me some guidance on how to setup BeerSmith to do No-sparge? All the mash steps seem to automatically include a sparge.

Determine how much you need in your boil pot and hope your mash tun holds it all with the grains. You will need to make a custom mash proifile. The amount of water that goes into the mash tun is the the amount of water the madsh tun will hold with your grain bill minus the water you want to use for your mash out step. You should mash out so you heat the grains and stoip the enzymatic action. then drain to your boil pot and fill to the desired level . I use 7 gallons of wort for a 1 hour boild to end with 5.25 gallons. Does this help.
