**All Grain Brewing / Efficiency drop**

« **on:**July 06, 2011, 07:31:51 AM »

Just wondering how much impact the malt plays in driving efficiency? I switched 2-row malt and my effiiciency seems to have dropped dramatically. I did not adjust my roller spacing although I'm considering tightening them until I get through this bag. I mash at 2L/lb, same as before.

I was running 82-85% and all of the batches I've done with this grain have been in the 70-72% range. Yesterday I used 8.5 lbs 2-row, 1 lb of corn and 0.5 lbs of C45 and got 18L of 1.052 OG. Did I screw up the math?

Thanks
