My sense is that you would want to mash lower (say 148-149F for 90 minutes) if you hope to go from OG 1.076 down to FG 1.010-1.012, since that would require about 85% attentuation. For me, S-05 in a brew mashed at 152F usually attenuates in the range of 75%.

My original plan was to mash a bit lower to dry it out, but after reading a few threads on here that suggest US-05 will ferment just about any simple sugars you throw at it and get >80% att. without too much effort got me thinking... I would rather have it a bit sweet than too dry I think. Maybe?
