Let me clarify: I put 14.5 gallons in my mash tun, heated it to 164 degrees (or thereabouts, don't have my notes), and mashed in. My HLT was at 152, recirculating the water. Upon starting recirc,...

Well, I came in low... 70% efficiency instead of a planned 80%. I don't think that's too bad. I let the mash go for 90 minutes, and then fly sparged. This was my first herms, first 20 gallon on a...
