New brewers can get quite caught up in analyzing single efficiency figure. It is not wise to do this. A single efficiency figure is based on a gravity reading and a volume reading. As many things can go wrong when taking these, they can often be very inaccurate.
BIABrewer does encourage new brewers to take readings and record them when they are mentioned in The Commentary BUT does not encourage analyzing these figures to any great degree until after you have done 5 or 10 brews. These figures, when averaged, will then have become valuable and your experience at taking readings will also have developed.
