Waldo Lake Amber - Efficiency Discrepency?

We brewed the Waldo Lake Amber this past weekend - exactly per the NB recipe.

I plugged the grain bill into BrewMate. It told me I should have an OG of 1.069 at 65% Efficiency.

The recipe sheet on NB says the OG should be 1.063, but doesn’t give an efficiency reading. From a previous email to NB about a different kit, they told me the calculat kits at 75%.

Lo and behold, our OG was 1.063 and efficiency was 75%.

So - is BrewMate that far off?

Looks like it.

Hard to tell with out going through all the grains to see what their ppg’s are.
