Notes

We were only able to get 13 gallons of run off, rather than 15. Some questions on why: Beersmith assumes .96floz of water is absorbed per 1oz of grain. This translates to .12 gallons per lb. If our issue was only grain absorbtion, and we leave .25gal in the mash tun dead space, we would have needed each lb of grain (36lbs in the mash) to absorb .183 gallons of water, or 1.46floz per 1oz of grain.
