Here is my recipe that I put down last night but I am unsure as to how I have really overshot the SG on this brew. If I put the recipe into Brewmate then it comes out nearly spot on but with Beersmith 2 it estimates it a lot lower than what I got. I ended up with 23.5L of 1.061 wort into the fermenter? have I done something wrong with my recipe?

I put your recipe into BS2 got 1056. but my efficiency numbers are all screwed up and I can't explain why?

did you match the efficiency rates in Brewmate

I am wondering if BS2 is not that great for partial mashing. The 6L boil, may confuse it.

Maybe I will have to check my efficiency when I get home. I only steeped the Crystal, I didn't do a mash.
