I know I'm probably going to get a speech about not 'living by the software"
but I have a question. Here recently I've been fine tuning my efficiency and crush. Today's batch (ESB) I collected for a 2.5 gallon batch, 4.35 gallons of wort preboil @ 1.042 after mashing 5.5 pounds of grain mashed for 70 minutes then batch sparged.
My beersmith equipment profile has a total efficiency of 72%. with an estimated mash efficiency of 86.4%. Well, I think I have dialed in my system because todays measured efficiency was about 86.2%. I'm happy all around as I also hit all of my estimated gravity and volume amounts.
My question is about the "Measured Efficiency" amount. Today I got 111%. I don't understand this amount.
Any input is greatly appreciated.
