Best Crack.

Unread postby Beerkench » Tue Feb 11, 2014 1:38 pm

Thanks to the info on this forum, I changed my crush to 1.2mm from 1.0mm and am getting 78% overall efficiency, an increase from 73%.
It's a huge difference and gets me a couple of extra litres in the FV.
Are there any of you going bigger than 1.2mm?

I think a lot depends on the type of mill you are using. I have friends with BM's and with the same gap but with different brands of mills they get different efficiencies.

78% is pretty good, particularly overall. I get around 82% mash efficiency at 1.2 and that was from 78% at 1.4 with a 3 R Crankenstein
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
