91% Mash efficiency aaaargh !

I keep trying to brew a low abv, around 4.0% brew, but I just haven't managed it yet. Beersmith has been telling me I'm getting 80-85% and I've just brewed with 91% which will produce around 4.4% beer once fermented. I could liquor back, but at 50L into the fermentor, I'm getting tight on space!

It's not what I want, but it'll still get drunk :drink:

I'll guarantee next time I'll aim for 85-90% and get 75% !
To brew or not to brew, that would be a stupid question !
