A higher boil evaporation rate does not effect efficiency, because you have less wort. <br /><br />Think of it this way: if your system typically yields 4 gallons of 1.040 wort, but due to a higher evaporation rate you end up with 2 gallons of 1.080 wort, your efficiency is still the same. In both cases you ended up with 160 pts of sugars.<br /><br />Efficiency is just the ratio of the sugars you ended up with vs the maximum amount of sugars contained in the grain. It doesn't matter how dilute or concentrated they are.Señor Brew™https://www.blogger.com/profile/16551091801092085016noreply@blogger.com
