How do you calculate efficiency when doing AG?

Yeah, read that once, maybe do the math once, then have some software do it for you (promash, etc.) Just plug in your recipe and adjust the efficiency until you reach your actual OG.

I'll second the using a program to do the calculation. It's fun to do it once or twice by hand..... but a lot easier to let ProMash tell you how well you've done.
