Still dialing in my efficiency on my new all grain system. The last three brews have had sporadic efficiency at best. Just trying to see what would be my best bet for a correction

Brewed the half recipe this afternoon and I guess my efficiency just sucks. I mashed at 152 and ended up with 5 gallons pre boil at 1.067 ish. With about 30 minutes left in the boil I checked gravity with a refractometer and realized I was gonna be way low on gravity so I managed to scrounge up 12 oz of light DME and a pound of dextrose. I know I probably threw the profile all out of whack but oh well. Long story short I ended up with around 4 gallons in the carboy at 1.090. This crappy efficiency is killing me. I've batch sparged with both a braid and a false bottom and can't manage to get out of the low 60's.

I mash in a bag (voile) and consistently hit 70+% and never a stuck run-off.

Okay, looking up our Escondidian clone attempt ("E" caps)... 67 % LDME; 8% crystal 80, check. We used 8% munich, not sure if that factors... 5% chocolate malt, 5% candi sugar, 3% carafa II, 2.6% smoked malt, 1.3 % black patent. Came out waaaay to much dark stuff, to my taste buds. God knows what else, I remember it blew out all over my buddys rented bathroom ceiling. But that was oh eleven, and they still dont taste right. Look my 2 cents is take your best Imperial IPA, add 3% carafa, and call it cloned. Send me one, cuz I freakin lov the stuff. Mitch Steele is really smart but this should be really simple. IMO. Sorry I didn't log the hop schedule, but I guarantee even though it involved simcoe, it was insufficient, but hops was not what made it off.

What does everyone think about kegging this beer rather than bottling? I know it's probably to high of a gravity to properly age on tap but I don't have enough bottles right now. What's everyone's opinion on pros and cons?

It doesn't need to age, but does age ok. Aging will cause loss of hop flavor/aroma.

I blended the full batch and the half batch that I brewed of this yesterday. Kegged 5 gallons with 3 oz of Nelson in the keg for the dry hop and bottled the rest without ever dry hopping just to see how it turns out. I'll post an update once I've had a chance to taste each in 2 weeks or so.
