I’ve even decanted our 10l into a cube before it hits boil and reintroduced once the initial boil surge is over. Especially when I’m trying to get 44 l Out of my 50l unit. Seems to work just fineI've just done my 4th triple batch it the 70lt and consistently get 80percent. I do a big sparge though of about 35lts from a hlt. I am finding it a bit stressful doing the boil with 67lts in the guten though as it leaves very little head space and was wondering if it would be OK to leave out 5lts from the sparge and boil 62lts of wort and then add 5lts of boiling water After the boil to get me to my final volume thus giving me the extra head space during the boil To avoid any possible boil overs. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks
I have stirred the last few brews now and efficiency has increased, I do full volume no sparge, my next brew will be minus the overflow pipe, its a bit like an appendix never gets used just sits there.I get between 80% and 85% mash eff all the time. Don’t stir the bed and make sure pump is turned down not to flow down O/flow pipe. OG’s are usually around 1.050 and only sparge with 5L to rinse the bed otherwise treat it as BIAB. Thats on a 40L looking at getting the 70L as im wanting to fill more kegs as brew days are hard to find.
I assumed i was entering (Beersmith) data incorrectly and have checked many times all looks good.
