yep, taking pics. Just added first round of hops, 1oz fuggles, ad a bit of a problem during the sparge, tube came off during all te stirring, but got that fixed. pre-boil gravity ended up .041 I was aiming for .051 so I could have done better wit the sparge but I'll see where I ended up with final gravity.

Remember, efficiency is a combination of mash and lauter eff. Both can have a profound affect on your eff. overall. It may not be the lauter.

The style calls for an OG of 1.044 to 1.060, so you will be in style.
