Did my first AG today.
From start to finish it was about 5 1/2 hours but was alot of fun. Made some mistakes on calculations for strike volume/temp so i ended up with larger volume than my brew pot. Did batch sparging and my mash volume ended up larger than the sparge volume too. Live and learn.

Can someone help me with figuring out efficiency??
8 lbs marris Otter
1 lb Crystal 60L
0.5 lb Roasted Barley (sub for American Brown)
0.5 lb Chocolate (sub for Belgian Chocolate)

Wyeast Scottish Ale #1728

OG 1.052

Any help would be appreciated.

Depends on your final volume but I figure its about 71% at 5 gallons and about 78% at 5.5 gallons.
