Quick question- if I overshoot my OG can I safely dilute the wort before the start of the boil or will that adversely affect the beer?
Full scenario. I batch sparge (cooler/screen) and generally end up at about 76% efficiency. My next batch will involve a decoction (I generally am a single infusion/occasional step infusion guy). Years ago I decocted an Ofest and achieved a mid-80’s efficiency (lost my notes when my computer died).
I’ve set Promash to an 80% efficiency setting for this brew but if I come in over I’d like to be able to keep this beer within the style guidelines.
