Brew #30: Rye Wallop

September 15, 2012

Decreased efficiency from 80% to 78%, Beer Engine showed 85g increase in the malt bill given 1036 target OG.  Rinsed with 7.4 litres. Things started getting out of hand.  29.5 litres at 1040 indicated 107% mash efficiency. Started suspecting the accuracy of crystallised rye malt’s extract value of 116 degrees litre. Kicking myself for getting all that extra beer then added some liquor into the kettle, hit 1036 at some stage, finally ended up with 28 litres into the fermentor at 1038 OG.
