Do you mind sharing you water to grain ratio for your mash?  My mash efficiency was 72% (14 lbs of two row with 1.050 as a pre-boil OG collecting 7.5 gal wort collected) on my last batch and I am trying to decide what to change first, my mill gap (crush looks ok, but I am an all grain noob) or use a thinner mash (been using 1.250 quarts/lb)... I got the calculation from how to brew ( 37 x grain / volume = points; preboil og/ points = mash eff.)  Am I doing this calculation right?  I am batch sparging in a 70 quart cooler with a toliet braid.

If ya want to go down that "efficiency" road play with this.   http://braukaiser.com/wiki/index.php?title=Troubleshooting_Brewhouse_Efficiency
 There is a Efficiency troubleshooting spreadsheet under calculating efficiency that will guide ya in the direction.  Personally i use 1.75qt/lb because thats what works best for my system, EHERMS .

Heres another link that may help.   http://braukaiser.com/wiki/index.php?title=Understanding_Efficiency

Great website for sure.

A little trial and error also to what works best for you and your system. I use a copper manifold system in my mash cooler and have no problems with a finely milled grain. Good conversion managing my ph and temp at a range of 1.5-1.70qts/lb is my typical mash- depending on my recipe. With that im a solid mid 80's efficiency- but Denny's mark is on my radar and some tweaks and I might hit it someday.

Ratio was 1.63:1.  That's pretty normal for me.  Off the top of my head your calculation looks good, but I've only had one cup of coffee so far.
