    PREDICTIONS FOR :
  1. At the end of the boil, the wort bitterness will be approximately 0 IBU's.

  2. You have indicated you will add litres of top-up liquor to the fermentor, hence the beer's bitterness will be closer to 0 IBU's.

10.  WATER REQUIREMENTS
(A single-temperature infusion-mash is assumed. Note : the following calculations will help you to do repeatable brews without running out of sparge liquor etc, its really just a combination of simple maths and common sense !)
Mass of grain in recipe : 
(This amount is automatically calculated from table 3 above);
0
 kg
Ratio of mash liquor to grain, e.g. 2.3 : 
(A lower ratio, say 2.0 litres / kg will give a thick mash. A higher ratio, say 3.0 litres per kg, will give a thin mash. A good starting point is 2.3 litres / kg)
 Litres / kg
Volume of mash liquor that sits beneath the false bottom in your mash tun : 
(This amount is not able to mix with the grain when you first mash-in and so needs to be added on)
 Litres
Hence, amount of mash liquor added to the mash tun at mash-in : 
0
 Litres
Volume of wort that sits below the level of the tap / drain in your mash tun : 
(This amount will be smaller than the figure two rows above and is what would be left in the bottom of your mash tun if you opened the tap full and allowed it to run itself dry, assuming of course you don't tip your mash tun !);
 Litres
Rate at which wort remains in the grain after sparging, e.g. 0.57 : 
(Imagine running the mash tun dry, the remaining grain would still be quite wet and this figure estimates the wort volume for every kg of grain. Start with the suggested figure until you find otherwise !)
 Litres / kg
Hence, amount of wort lost in the spent grain : 
(This is the total amount left in the wet grain if you were to have run the mash tun dry)
0
 Litres
Hence, amount of initial mash liquor that will make it to the boiler : 
0
 Litres
Rate at which wort boils away during the boil, e.g. 3.2 : 
(As a first estimate, try 1.6 litre per hour for every kW of heating power that you use. E.g. : in a 25 litre plastic bin with a 2 kW kettle element it could evaporate around 3.2 litres per hour (i.e. 1.6 litre for each kW), hence put 3.2 into the adjacent box)
 Litres / hour
Duration of the boil, e.g. 90 : 
(All grain brewers would want this to be greater than 60 minutes, preferably 90 minutes)
 minutes
Hence, volume of wort evaporated away during the boil : 
0
 Litres
At the top of this page you indicated that your end-of-boil volume would be : 
0
 Litres
Taking into account the wort lost through evaporation over the minute boil, your starting volume at the beginning of the boil should be : 
0
 Litres
Volume of (top-up) sparge liquor added directly to the boiler : 
(Particularly when you are brewing low gravity beers (say < 1040) you may find that the SG of the last runnings from the mash tun is quite low (say < 1010) and you are risking extracting tannins, hence some of the sparge liquor can be added directly to the boiler, by-passing the mash. If you do this, enter the amount of top-up liquor here.)
 Litres
Hence, the volume of sparge liquor that you should put through your mash is : 
0
 Litres
Volume of sparge water below the hot liquor tank's tap : 
(This is the volume left in the hot liquor tank if you allowed it to run dry without tipping it !)
 Litres
Hence, before topping up the boiler or sparging, your hot liquor tank should be topped to a volume of at least : 
0
 Litres
Hence, the total amount of liquor that you will need in order to conduct the mash, top up the boiler and run the sparge is : 
0
 Litres
