I actually calculate my recipe at 70% for small beers, 65% for 1.050ish beers, then I won't no sparge anything bigger since its just as easy to batch sparge. The primary reason I use this method is to produce a more malty session beer, and I think it works very well!
And that is what I hit last night. The beer ended up 1.040 but I milled the grain pretty fine this time.

All in all I am happy with it. Volumes worked out and now that I now the strike water needs to be a little warmer I am golden
