It was a good discussion and now everyone understands boiling does not affect efficiency (and why).
I disagree. Overall boil off is part of the mash equitation and therefor also part of efficiency. At the point you stop filling the kettle efficiency is set.
Explain in depth...
I'll repeat for what must be the millionth time...BOILING DOES NOT AFFECT THE EFFICIENCY.
The second part of your statement pretty much proves the point. You boil once you stop filling the kettle, so boiling plays no part in efficiency.
Boil off IS NOT part of a mash equation or equitation for those without a spell checker - therefore vs. therefor - less drinky before typy
