According to Promash, that's 70% efficiency for a 5g batch (higher if you collected more than 5g. I certainly wouldn't bother about a difference of 0.001.

-a.

70% is good... see if you can maintain it (no reason you shouldn't stay there)

I am now getting abt 65%, but it is pretty consistent batch to batch, which is what is important to me..if i hit 70%, there will be no parade, just a higher OG bec Promash is dialed in at 65%..
