Nice! Was the higher OG on purpose or just some good efficiency?

This is only my 8th all-grain batch so nothing is on purpose yet. ;-)

According to my math, I got 87% efficiency. I seem to get 75% or higher all the time unless I screw something up and end up at 60%. I'd prefer to be at 75%.

87% is awesome efficiency. 75% is a great area to be too. But the main goal is consistency... once you know your usual efficiency you will know exactly what you're going to get from each recipe.

Regardless, I'm sure it will be delicious and, most importantly, beer!

But isn't it bad to have too high an efficiency? Isn't there a risk of extracting too much bad stuff (tannins?) when you get too high?

Nope. Tannin extraction is a concern when you have too-high sparging temps or a wonky pH. I've done partigyles where I sent in tons of sparge water without tannin off-flavors.

Hmmm.... Looking again, you're right. I misunderstood what I had read about high efficiencies. Thank you.

Odd, I didn't have any issues with this recipe and a stuck sparge (16hr mash, stir 5m before draining). Are you using the mesh hose cooler setup for your tun? It seems like i've seen a lot more stuck in those lately.

Yeah the screen will likely clog up easier.

I think that 16hr mash really thinned things out for you.

Ok, I want to brew this beer. I had grains milled for a different beer but I want to do this now instead. Problemis I want to use the graini already have and it's mixed together so here is the recipe I will wind up with. What do you think?

9lb pale malt
.5 lb Munich
.5 lb victory
.5 lb cara pils
.25 lb melanoidin
.5 lb crystal 60

Pumpkin and spices as per original recipe. Think this will turn out tasty?
