    If my numbers were right, this is the best conversion I have ever got. 91%

    So it is starting to rain...had to drag the brewery into the garage, didn't interrupt the boil....I AM AWESOME!!!

    And then it started hailing......

    So I hit my numbers but overshot my volumes.
    This was part a goof in the recipe creation, and part a need to adjust how much is left in the pot after draining.
    The recipe called for 7 gallons to the fermentor, but I only transferred 6.

    After I factor that in, I still had a gallon of wort/trub in the pot.

    I have adjusted my equipment, and I think I will be much closer now
