Thanks, what you're saying makes perfect sense, but why would you want to use a fixed amount of water with variable amounts of grains? Doesn't anyone want the maximum efficiency?

I would highly recommend that too, unless you know that you make good beer every time, but even then I would taste it myself first before serving it to someone else.

Enlight me, please!

I don't think any true recipe would use 87 ibus for an og of 53. The bitterness would make the beer undrinkable. But if the op remembers/calculates/ guesstimates the ibus the same way they measured...
