I brewed what was supposed to be an Imperial Stout, but got VERY low efficiency. The beer still turned out great, and I'm thinking about entering it into a competition as an American Stout. My problem is that the numbers do not really fit in any category. The OG was too low to be Imperial, but the IBUs are too high to be American. Will the high IBU be counted against me in a competition?
Also, I have the recipe plugged into Brew Builder and on Brewtoad. They are saying FG should have been 1.018 and 1.021. (Safale US-05)
