All Grain brewers use a good 2-row base malt and mash with 1.25 quarts of water per pound at 152F. Mash
efficiency is based on 75% extraction. If your system doesn’t get 75%, adjust your malt bill accordingly.
Note to all: If you cannot boil the entire 5 gallons, you will have to increase your hops about 35% to account
for the lower utilization due to the higher gravity of the boil.
