Thanks Wambesi

Meathead - open it in beer smith 2, (file->open) - the select Grainfather (DBB) and edit -> copy, then open your equipment profile (profiles -> equipment) and edit->paste.

hope that helps!

They're mostly the same blokes from the FB group so it's most likely the same settings as attached above.

Are you counting volume in kettle or volume in fermenter?

I've always hit 75% biab. I fly sparged which took an hour. And a few weeks ago I did a brew date and learned how to sparge. I got him to check my mill and He said that I probably have a bit to much of a crush.

Not doubting you but give us the numbers so we can see where we are missing out!!!
  • Grain Bill in Kgs
  • mash vol in litres
  • mash time/duration and mash schedule
  • sparge Vol and duration
  • SG at end of sparge
  • litres at start of boil
  • litres at end of boil
  • SG at end of boil
  • Litres into fermenter
  • SG of wort prior to pitching yeast
  • For starters
Cheers

Is there away to take a screen shot of a computer/beersmith so I can post the results up easier. Knowingly my luck did something wrong. I entered everything it told me to
