These are From the links YOU just gave me... Showing that yes efficiency is LOWERED by higher temps... Did you read through the link?
Next time you go to a DOZE meeting maybe you can listen for a change? Maybe you can even have Tasty teach you how to read the legend of a scatter chart while you're at it?
As I said: "Higher mash temperatures increase efficiency"
In chart one the red dots are "brewhouse yield" (aka efficiency). These show that higher temps = higher efficiency. The downward sloping blue dots indicate "limit of attenuation" which is fermentability not efficiency.
In cart 2 attenuation is discussed which has nothing to do with efficiency, just fermentability.
In cart 3 all three efficiency charts are upward sloping though I'd agree that the blue and yellow series aren't particularly compelling (higher temps = higher efficiency).
