The Standard Tinseth formula assumes leaf hops (without the 10% bonus utilization.) If you will use pellets, but don't believe in the pellet bonus (or believe in a different bonus), adjust. If you will use leaf hops, adjust (for both utilization and for greater wort absorption). YMMV. - I used my own boil off rate (in conjunction with hop wort absorption) to determine my starting wort volume, which impacts hop utilization. YMMV. Adjust as necessary. Use your software. - Anything you change that relates to absorption will change the total fermentables you need to get out of your mash. So you may need to adjust the grain bill up/down. - If your hops have different Alpha Acid percentages, adjust as necessary. - This recipe assumes 70% Mash Efficiency, a little higher than BYO recipes (for example) assume, but probably closer to the average efficiency on this forum based on what I've seen over the years. YMMV. Adjust as necessary. Other Notes: Partial Mash Option Mini-Mash the Wheat Malt, Flaked Oats, and Honey Malt together. Replace the North American 2-Row Brewer's Malt with 5.74 lbs Extra Light DME. Add the DME during the boil.
