Having an issue here. I'm using iBrewmaster and it is reading an OG of only 1.059 after I plugged everything in using a 70% efficiency. I changed the 2-Row to Briess, but that is the only alteration. Is there something I could be missing here?

One of the grains is off the screen, but they're all up there.

Bottled three weeks ago and this is the final result. Epic brew with heavy tropical fruit and very well balanced. Going into the regular rotation!

I just throw the hops directly into the secondary; I assume the stainless unit goes straight up in the keg? I would have assumed that it would just sink out rather than float around like that.

Well, the Nugget is the original recipe, so its probably closer. I didn't see any reason to go with Nugget after doing it with Warrior (which is my generic bittering hop of choice), but I bet any difference would be exceedingly marginal.
Mine ended up coming out great, despite forgetting to take gravity readings. SWMBO is pretty possessive of it which is probably a good sign. The only negative is she'll pour herself a few pints (hops are good for your health apparently), so I may be brewing it again soon.

Next time I'm going to try the warrior route and see which I like better.
