Brewday Notes:

Used washed yeast from Ale van der Drupe. 4 months old, 3 jars with ~200ml total yeast slurry. 24 hour 4.25L starter at high krausen with very visible bubbles.
Mashed in at 78.4C, stirred for 5 minutes because of lots of dough balls. Fired for a few seconds, and hit target of 69C perfectly.
Extracted 6.5L instead of 4.2L from mash. Nice! Sparge until got 11L.
Boil SG: 1.091 (expected: 1.083)
OG: 1.072 (efficiency: 86%)
Bubbling twice per second and 1cm krausen @ 6 hours. Strong yeast.

Since starter was 4.25L, it affects efficiency measurements.
Actual brewed volume was 21.75L, plus 4.25L starter == 26L.
Estimating starter was at 1.015 when pitched:
( ( OG1 * V1 ) + ( OG2 * V2 ) ) / ( V1 + V2 ) = OG
( (OG * (V1 + V2) ) - (OG2 * V2) ) / V1 = OG1
( (71 * 26) - (15 * 4.25) ) / 21.75 = 82 points (1.082 OG)
Using http://www.brewersfriend.com/brewhouse-efficiency/
21.75L @ 1.082 == 84.34% (1.091 max)

Bottled 2015-05-09, 120g table sugar. FG 1.020 @ 20C.
