I always thought my decoctions resulted in a little higher efficiency that also showed up in the FG. I do quite a bit of no-sparge and haven't noticed any difference in efficiency between it and normal single infusion with batch sparge.
My range of efficiency when using the floor-malted bopils and a normal sparge is about 72-77%, with 73-74% being most typical, so I don't think I lost much, if any, efficiency due to the no-sparge. The triple-decoction's 90% efficiency was definitely above what I typically get with one- or two-step decoctions, which are more in the 80-85% range. I'm pretty surprised the OG and FG in my study were identical. I didn't test to absolute limit of attenuation, so I'm not sure if one of them could've gone further if I had forced it.
The main motivation behind this study was my frustration with the number of people who say "melanoidin malt does the same thing as decoction" when it really, really seemed to not be the case. I agree you should be conservative with any conclusions drawn, but the results have been surprising to me and have given me a lot to think about.
