Are there any websites with information on what the maximum percentage of the grist particular malts should be? I would like some kind of a starting point for experimenting with roasted malts.

Your efficiency appears fine. I'm typically at 78% to 82% for my system. I find that efficiency falls off when I have a significant percentage of wheat in the grist. I still don't really understand why.
I love the taste brown malt gives. It tastes like a toasted bagel.
From the brewery website....
"What we really like about this beer is the smoothness that brewing with cream sugar brings to the palate. This smoothness balances out the copious quantities of roasted barley used in the brewing process to create a rich, complex, and delicious beer. If you have not been a stout drinker in the past, give this beer a try. It might just change your mind about how dark beers should taste. It tastes so rich, but is surprisingly easy to drink!"
I stored mine in a couple of lowes plastic 5 gallon buckets with lids. $5 each.
No problems with it being airtight? I like economical.....
