Very few homebrewers here in India. I buy most ingredients abroad and get it delivered to friends, family, whoever agrees to get me stuff if they are travelling here
I get malted barley and DME from my mentor homebrewer and soon to be microbrewer who buys it in bulk from North India.
Mumbai never faces power cuts normally and we were not affected by the grid failure up north.

Refractometers are inaccurate once alcohol is in the mix, as alcohol changes the way light refracts. I bet if you use a hydrometer, you'll find this beer is actually much lower than 1.024!
Yeah, silly me, I didn't adjust the BRIX value while posting here.
My adjusted gravity is 1.009
