I've got some irregular sugar extraction efficiency problems. My efficiency is regularly low. I need your help. :) I get anywhere from 60% - 85%.
I've fine tuned my mill to the best of my ability, so I don't think that's much of a problem. I use a batch sparge method during the lautering process and I know fly sparging is probably a better way if I'm really concerned with efficiency. But I'm not really interested in doing that. Could grain bed channels be a problem even with batch sparging?
Do you have any other methods that you'd recommend to increase consistency and efficiency?
- 10 gallon Igloo cooler MLT
- Digital cable thermometer for monitoring mash temps
- Single infusion batch sparge
