I would add DME as opposed to sugar if I miss my efficiency/OG, but that is just me. But, in a beer that big it may not matter.

Well my concern is more getting the FG down and not having it too syrupy.  That's why I was thinking of using sugar. Or would it matter?

Man this brew day sucked. How does 53% efficiency sound? Ran out of DME on the 2nd runnings and used sugar. So the stout OG was only 1.081 and the brown ale (second runnings) was 1.040.  Oh well, it will make beer. Never doing parti-gyle again, though...or maybe I'll torture myself every father's day until I get this right! Hmm....nah!
