Figuring out mash efficency for different volumes
I have a 15 bbl DME system that I will knock out about 15.5bbls and yield around 14bbls. of finished beer. When I do a half batch for higher gravity beers I get a 50% ME instead of the usual 75-80ish%. Is there a formula for figuring out mash eff. for various volumes? I would like to be able to brew a volume inbetween these two but I'm not sure how to adjust and figure a ME without just making a run at it first.I understand there are a lot of variables for ME but wonder if there is a way to get a ballpark figure?
Does anyone understand what I'm talking about?
