I have just put down my 3rd (9th )partial mash in a bag using a 20 litre boiler. I use BREWMATE to design the recipe As my mash has only two grains and steeping of two specialty grains I've only a small amount of liquid.
.Unfortunately I don't have enough liquid for the hydrometer to stand up.Can I take a sample and take a hydrometer reading out of that sample. Everything I've read seems to point to placing the hydrometer in the pre boil mash liquid
Next, how do you calculate the efficiency.?
thanks for any help.

If your hydrometer came in a tube, put some liquid in the tube and measure it from there.
