So I planned out a brew-day last minute and used this recipe as kind of a guideline. I had been having low-efficiency issues so I expected to undershoot my SG. I didn't have time to do a starter, but because I was expecting a lower SG I wasn't too worried about pitching directly into the wort.

Well low-and-behold I apparently fixed my efficiency issues and actually overshot the recipes SG (came out at 1.081). While I'm glad I got the kinks worked out of my AG system, I am worried about not using a starter on this brew. I used a 1056 smack-pack. I did break the nutrients and let is sit for about 4 hours before pitching. I started seeing a lot of airlock activity within 8 hours of pitching.

What effect do you think not using a starter is going to have on my brew?

IMO I think you will be fine. Congrats on your numbers.
Did you by chance boil it down a little more to get this? I am hoping to brew this in the next few weeks if my order will ever get here. I ordered my grain 11 days ago. My best is 1.076 but don't have exact volume numbers in those notes. My ones with good notes are 1.070 and 72 even with using 17lb of grain. On those two I added a pound of Carafa III (which might be 1/2 lb too much). It made a great Black IIPA though.

I'm not familiar with beersmith, but what is your boil volume to top-off water volume?

I did boil down a little bit. I did a single batch-sparge and guestimated on the volume. I was trying to get 6.5 gallons in the pot pre-boil but ended up with around 7.5. Even then I had some wort left behind in the mash-tun but I was out of room in the pot. I boiled down to 6.5 gallons before doing any of my hop additions.

Now that I got my grain crush and mashing methods down, my next step is getting better at calculating my sparging water volumes.

I mashed a little too high due to a faulty thermometer, but Day 10 hydro check showed pretty decent attenuation down to 1.015. Tasty as well! Looking forward to dryhopping stage this weekend.

I brewed this up last weekend because I have loads of centennial. I used Columbus instead of magnum and mashed at 149 since I was using wlp002. The brew closet smells amazing and I can't wait to see how this comes out.

I also switched the hop schedule a bit and added a hop stand @180 for 30min
