+1. I'm fairly certain this is your answer. And as billl said, if you followed the recipe and got the right volume, then your OG is going to be right around what the recipe said.

Hmmm...I thought I had agitated the crap out of it for 2 minutes before I checked it. But that might explain why the sample flavors were so different. Maybe the sweetness will drop and the bitterness will come back between fermentation and bottle conditioning. Thanks folks! And WissaBrewGuy: brilliant. Sometimes the most simple, obvious steps are totally overlooked! Check the baseline...duh! Thanks! I checked it and, compensating for the water temp, it looks right.

I'm glad it works! Always good to do a sanity check. It must have been the mixing issue. I don't do a lot of extract so I didn't really know this could be an issue. Good luck and cheers to good beer!
