You remembered to do the magical efficiency dance, right?

It's ok, it will just take me less grain to make the same product. It doesn't make you any less of a brewer.

Well, I have been able to move from high 50's to mid 70's.
My pocketbook can deal with adjusting to lower eff, so yea. If you like the beer you make, don't worry about it and have a dam.. homebrew.
