So i made a few batches in the coolers and wasn’t really liking the process. I ended up picking up a blichman boilermaker and mash screen for xmas.
I made NB’s All grain CREAM ALE.
I mashed with 3 gallon, Sparged with 5.2 gallon, and ended up with a boil volume of 6.5(approximate from the volume guage).
After my 1 hour boil i had 5.5 gallons left.
I chilled it down and checked the OG and it was 1.06!!! that would mean i got 100% efficiency. How is this possible???
I did att 16OZ honey during the last 5 minutes of the boil but that should only have added 5 points to my OG. I incorporated that in to my calculation and thats how I came up with 100% efficiency.
My main concern is coming in so high on future beers using this boilermaker and mash screen. What did I do wrong here or are these pots that good?
