I just plugged my numbers into BeerSmith. I got 48% efficiency. If I was running a brewery I'd be out of business.

I've had those batches. Not many, and long ago, but I've had them.

I just found this article.

Your grain crush suggestion was right on top. It would also appear that I sparged way too quickly. I was probably done in less than 10 minutes. Live and learn I guess. I'll try again in a few weeks.
