why not just adjust the recipe to the actual efficiency you're getting?

Agreed with Denny as to the fix, but perhaps you have stumbled upon the elusive American Mild?

pH is on target.  Maybe it's the crush but there's nothing I can really do about that.  Maybe someday get my own mill.  In the meantime I guess I could just add an extra lb or tow of 2 row to every batch.  Denny, adjust the recipe meaning aim for a lower OG = less grain?

Generally you don't see that kind of behavior in a major appliance.

gave is 35 psi yesterday to speed things along and rocked it a little today.  It came out really tasty.  At least that, and I'm fine with the 4% so it's a win.  8)
