Dedicated brewers will spend years fine-tuning their mash-in water volume and grain crush to get optimal efficiency and clarify, but for most Robobrewers purchasing pre-milled grain from a local homebrew supplier, there’s a few formulae that will give you great efficiency and reduce the chances of a stuck sparge right off the bat.
