Default NB all grain kit efficiency

I picked up the grain for a dead guy clone at NB today, while there I saw a limited edition Dundalk Irish heavy extract kit. I asked if they had an AG version, they dont, but they used to, the guy was nice enough to pull up the AG recipe. so I gather all the grain for a 5 gal batch. I brew it after breaking a thermometer in the strike water and starting over. I got a little heavy on the water as this is my 3rd ag batch.
I started with 16 qts of strike and hit my 150 temp for an hour. I sparged with 2 gallons and then freaked out and added more sparge because I only got about 5 or 5,25 gallons of water in the pot. It turns out I shouldnt have added more water and shouldve been patient. I ended up with 7 gallons pre boil. i boiled for around 80 minutes and wound up with 1.065 wort at 5.5 gallons. the recipe calls for 5 gallons @ 1.062
Im not going to complain but I was curious if anyone knows what mash efficiency the NB instructions are calculated at since they are very vague.

That sounds like a good problem to have.

BTW it was a long fricking brew day, Started at 4, finished up at 12. I called in to work to do this and ended up doing the same amount or more of work. Sheesh!

I think it depends on equipment setup used. I'd guess it's probably 70-75%. I was just looking at the extract version of that brew. Looks pretty tasty. Care to share the recipe for you're AG version?

I remember looking at the old AG instructions that someone had attached on a thread on this site and it was based on 70% efficiency.
