I only ended up with 5 gallons into the fermenter with this recipe. I boiled at highest flame the entire time. This is the first time I've done that and evaporated more wort than ever before. FROM NOW ON - Brew IPA's with a 15.5lb grain bill using (6 gals strike water and 4 gals sparge water). This should result in a 5.5 - 6 gal batch even with a vigorous boil.Pitched yeast at 70 degrees and next morning fermentation was strong. I turned temp down to 57 degrees (middle of temp range for ...

I will keep the beer at this temp for fermentation as it is within the specs of the yeast.1. Ferment at 55 degrees for 14 days.2. Let rise to 62 degrees and leave for 3 days once reached.3. Cold crash to 35 degrees at increments of 5 degrees a day.4. ...

Exactly 6 gallons went into the fermenter using the water calculations in this recipe. Most importantly the mash tun loss (.33 gals) and kettle trub loss (.5 gals). Only hit 1.074 OG so efficiency seemed low. Next time, consider the same size grain bill (15.5 lbs) and use 6 gallons of mash water and 4 gallons of sparge water. That way, I can use my smaller kettle for heating sparge water. Using this amount of water to grain I should get 5.75 gals into fermenter. Mash temp was 152 but I heated ...

Hit target OG using Brew365 water calculator. I used a .5 trub loss and .5 equipment loss. I set recipe for 11 finished gallons but ended up with 12 gallons.
