Mash/Sparge water volumes

Question for all you experts…

If I were to use TOO MUCH mash water, and then TOO LITTLE sparge water…would this result in low OG values?

You lower your efficiency a little, that’s all.

But not by much. The variation between no-sparging and a fly sparge with a very thick mash is always less than 10%. So for an average-gravity beer, you could see a drop of as much as 6 “points”, but more likely 1-2.
