Ok new to All grain with about 5a batches under the belt. I use brew smith as the software and do 5still gallon batches. My question deals with efficiency. I am averaging 61% and I am getting frustrated. Beers tastet great but I want better efficiency. My MT is a rectangle Coleman 50qt. My temps have been spot on only loosing upto 1degree over 60 min. I am batch sparging and know that lessens efficiency. The only thing can think of is the ph which I haven’t checked because I don’t have a ph meter. I k ow ph is important but from what I have read it seems that ph doesn’t influence efficiency as much as temp does. Only other thing I can think of is the mill at my HBS maybe it isn’t milling good enough.
Any thoughts and help would be very welcome.
