Reaching starting gravity?

Postby hankster » Sun Oct 13, 2002 8:53 am

In using Beer Tool Gold I have found that I have yet to reach what Beer Tools thinks should be the staring gravity. I took a chance on my last batch and decided to Edit the starting gravity from 72%, which the program seem to set as a default, to a lesser % and kept increasing the Malts until I found that I was probably only getting 64% from my mash. Any comments? Tnx! Hank

Do you know your PH?

Hank,

PH can dramatically affect your effeciency, also are you performing an Iodine test to see if you have reached full conversion?
