Congratulations that's awesome news.

I went 4 weeks and bottled today. FG was 1.012, but I am not sure of the OG. It calculates to about 1.064 I think, but my reading was 1.052. Prob from top off water not mixing.

What are others getting for OG/FG?

I plan on making the Porter soon. My LHBS do not have the recommended hops for the recipe so I am going to use some left over hops I have in the freezer. Let me know if you think this sounds good....

Boil .5oz Columbus Hops 45min
Flameout use .5oz Willamette for aroma.

My IBU is 37 with this hop schedule. The recipe calls for an IBU of 25-45, so I think I'll be good with this. What do you guys think?

Question about the White House Honey Ale. Is this supposed to be a very "heady" beer? I have very little foam and it's been bottled for almost 2 months. I have to pour pretty heavy to get a half inch or so of foam. Thoughts? Experiences?

How much priming sugar? How long in the fridge? It could also be how you clean your glass.

should be great. willamette is pretty mild so you probably won't get a whole lot from it, but that's ok since porters aren't supposed to be heavy on the hop aroma anyways. go for it.

Drinking: a belgian pale ale, a belgian imperial stout, an Epic 09.09.09 clone, a brett'ed saison
Carbing: a hop-bursted APA, a citra farmhouse
Fermenting: an abbey ale (to be soured)
Aging: an oud bruin, a BDSA/Dubbel thingy, a soured fruit saison, my "wild oats" brett/sour, a saison with a brett mix added at bottling.
Up next: TBD, probably not brewing again until july.

Ericbw,

Had the same issue almost exactly.

I calculated the OG to be just above 1.060 but it measured at 1.050-1.052.

Still in the primary so not sure how far down the gravity will drop.

If you brewed an extract batch then the main variable which can cause you to miss your gravity is final volume. If you under boiled (too much wort left after boil) or added too much top up water then your gravity will be low.

As Ericbw mentions not vigorously stirring the top up water can lead to a low gravity reading also.
