So, I went with the recipe "as is" this first time, except I used Denny's Favorite #50 yeast (Smack Pak) and I added 6 lbs frozen, whole strawberries after flameout at about 170F. My OG wound up really low...I think it was because I didn't figure my water properly and made too much. So, the next day, I took a gallon of the wort and boiled it with 3 lbs DME for 15 minutes, cooled and added it back. That was supposed to put it in the 1.053 range, but it only made it to 1.040...but I can live with that. I had good action in the blow off. But, after 8 days, I'm still only down to an SG of 1.024 and I'm wondering if I should rack it and/or pitch more yeast? Because of my excess brew volume, I have about 1-1/2 gallons in a 2 gallon fermentation bucket at the same reading. Temperature in the house is about 70F. What do you all think?
