What's the efficiency of Zymurgy recipes?
« on: July 15, 2012, 08:17:03 PM »
Hello,

What's the efficiency of Zymurgy recipes?

I presume it's based on 75%,

Thanks.

On ones I've reviewed (and assuming they didn't identify a brewhouse efficiency), I try to calculate the implied efficiency of the original recipe and report it.  I personally don't like to readjust recipes to fit a standard efficiency since then it's no longer the original recipe.

I think that's a great way to do it, Gordon.

Oh sure, agree with Gordon. Way to go out on a limb. ;)

If you saw the BeerSmith Christmas show, you'd know Denny agrees with me all the time...

Besides, now I'm taking Denny's newsreader idea.

When you have such perfect logic, it's hard not to.  I mean, you think just like me.....scary, huh?
