    Hi. I'm testing out the recipe builder, and it doesn't seem to be right. I entered 11 lbs of 2-row and 1 lb of wheat malt, for a 5.5 gallon batch size, at 150 F mash temp and it's coming back with 1.027 OG and 2.57 abv. I'm thinking it should be at least double that. What's going on?

    nm. The builder seems to be defaulting to 35% efficiency.

    set to all grain and your efficiency to 70% or what ever you get normally, if in your settings it defaults to extract, it will change the efficiency differenently
