I'm back to overshooting my target OG -- this time it was like 86% efficiency (which sounds impossible, but the hydrometer ain't lyin').
I put this in the 4-gallon bucket, down in the basement storage room, with a blowoff tube (since I didn't have another airlock to spare). Temperatures down there should be a bit closer to ideal than they are in my apartment, but I'll check on it in the morning.
Oh, and I used snow to chill the wort! I put the brew pot in the kitchen sink, surrounded it with a bucketload of snow, then added water to make it an icy slurry. Chilled in like 30 minutes.
