    My preboil gravity was supposed to be 1065, but came out to 1060. I added approx 750 grams of dme, which brought the gravity up to 1066. Efficiency was set to 75%. How can I calculate what number to adjust my efficiency to?

    I'd just adjust my efficiency setting in that recipie until it reflects what you got on brew day and if it's been consistantly low leave it at that.

    I wouldn't change anything. A miss of 0.005 is not much and could be just about anything. Try it again and see if you get the same result.
