Congratulations on your level of efficiency. That's great.
Personally, I usually pull about 70% on a 14 lb grain bill, so I'm guessing I'm going to be a bit lower with the bigger grain bill.
I'm not worried about chasing efficiency at the moment. At some point I will work to improve it I'm sure, but at the moment I think my beer efforts will bear better fruit if direct elsewhere. For the Time being, I'm happy just compensating with a bit more grain.
