Mash volume with grains (equipment estimates 6.6 g | 26.4 qt) 6.68 26.7

WARNING: Kettle losses > 2% detected which throw off OG calculation for extract/partial mash recipes in batch target 'fermentor' mode. Solution: Reduce kettle losses, misc losses and hops absorption in equipment profile, OR set batch target to 'kettle' and do a full wort boil. See batch target FAQ.

Notes

Nutty and malt flavors are a little overpowering. Next time move more hops earlier in the boil.
