Curious as to why Speidel recommend 23L.

Why do Speidel recommend a mash in volume of 23l of water in the instructions for the 20l BM?
25l makes more sense as it's marked and it seems that this volume is the norm amongst us on this forum.
Just wondering how they came to the sum of 23l.

I don't know the answer but if I may speculate without actually doing physical measurements, I would think that 23 litres is the lowest amount of water recommended by Speidel so with any grain volume the element remains covered with enough wort so as not to cause failure.

As most do on here I just use 25 litres and sparge the rest of the water as recommended by my software.

I have tried 23 litres with no reportable gain in efficiency and it just means that I have to sparge another two litres.....for me 25 litres is fine for my brews.

The worst thing that can happen if I die is that my wife will sell all my brewing equipment for what I told her I paid for it
