Does today count? I just brewed my biggest beer to date, first beer with new manifold and mash tun insulation, first (hybrid) fly sparge, and got 20% better efficiency than planned! Shooting for 65% (like last big beer), I got 85%, putting my BDSA at 1.098! I'm a pretty happy camper! Hopefully it won't get infected or have tanins or anything dumb like that. Now the waiting game begins, but with a few smaller brews to tide me over! The pipeline's full again!
