Brewed this last night, and it's bubbling away happily this morning. For the first time in a long time, my efficiency was very low (65%). I suspect that this is because I did a higher-temperature mash (158F), rather than my recent forays into doing a beta amylase step followed by an alpha amylase step. This was largely intentional (though I overshot my target temperature of 156F), since I wanted this beer to be more full-bodied than some of my recent ones.
Right now it's fermenting at 68F, and I cracked a window in that room to try to bring it down to 66-67ish, though 68 would be fine.
