    I have decided to change the hop schedule. It's not a big difference but it does increase the
    IBUs, to a range more closely associated with IPAs, where as before I was probably closer to an
    APA. Chang...

    Yes, exactly right! Gravity calculators will show it as an efficiency increase though, hence
    why I originally posted "more efficient"; your description is more accurate however.

    sugars) as well as increased boil time (I guess b/c of decrease in batch yeild) can raise
    effciency. Since my ...

    I've have only brewed 3 AG before this will be my 4th. I love to come up with my own recipes.

    easier to do b/c...
