Preboil Gravity off

(1/5) > >>

chadchaney97:
My preboil OG is consistently off by about 10, example 1.040 is 1.030, etc.  Always seems to roll this way, nay ideas?

duboman:
Things to evaluate:
Crush quality
PH
Water to grist ratio
Temp
Sparge method
Sparge temp
Equipment-bazooka screen, manifold, false bottom?

Maybe tell us your process and can chime in accordingly

tygo:
Is your actual efficiency relatively consistent?

It sounds like just poor efficiency, could be attributed to alot of things.

If this is a consistent issue you can change your efficiency % and just add some grain to your recipes as well!
