Absolutely. I am dialed in like a mofo. I weigh out my water and tick off gallons on a dipstick. I use 3 different thermometers to check my temps. I use my refract constantly through the process and at the end double check with a hydrometer.
I just brewed a 13.5 gallon batch in my converted keg system, fly sparging, and hit 84 percent efficiency, which is unusually high for me. I'm at 78-80 percent nearly always. I'm talking 350 batches deep of 78-70 percent efficiency, with maybe 10 outside that range... that's why this batch sparging is so vexing!
I'm setting up a few sessions with some customers that see good efficiency batch sparging. I'm going to annoy the shit out of them with all my double checking and questions!
Make sure you are stirring the shit out of that mofo.
