[quote=“beerme11”]The extract i used was
muntons light 1.5 pounds and marris otter 3.15 pounds.
so total fermentables
3lb marris otter
.5 medium crystal
.5 torrified wheat
1.5 muntons light DME
3.15 Nb marris otter
I finally figured out how to get a mash ef from beer smith. it said 77% eff of mash. So know the mash eff is between 75-77.
I shook the carboy really well and got a gravitly ready of 1.050. That makes my total efficiency only 55%. I dont understand why that is so low. At 77% total efficiency is should have been 1.057. Could anything else be the cause of this becides the top off water and wort not mixing? I dont see what else would change I didnt miss the brew pot with the extract…[/quote]
Either your inital measurement after the partial mash is incorrect or your final measurement is incorrect. After the parital mash you have 108 gravity units( 3 gal @ 1.036) and then you added 4.65 lbs of extract, assuming 43 ppg that’s another 200 gu. So, again assuming the partial mash gravity/volume was correct then your final gravity should be 1.062(308 gu / 5 gallons). So at least one of your readings/volumes are not correct…or like you referenced you missed the pot with some of the extract
