Default Work night brewing

I decided to give family members some homebrew for Christmas. I Figured I had better get on the stick. Brewing Orfy's Hobgoblin and coming down to the end of the boil.

Wow 65% Efficiency!!!
I have been getting my grains at the LHBS (typically about 72%) This time I got them online... I can't wait until I get my grain mill.

My efficiency dropped with a change of grain and supplier.

Luckily I kind of overestimated the grain needed. Mainly because the recipe was made at 80% efficiency (scared me a little). I only missed the OG by .002 (on the low side).
Sometimes it is better to be lucky than good.


<EDIT> I had the SG wrong.

I just tapped my first Orfy's Hobgoblin last night. Man that's a good beer.
