The original recipe only called for the crystal malt, no special b with an Estimated Original Gravity:1.051-54, but I added the special b for some added flavor.
Something is wrong there. 8lbs of (liquid?) extract and a pound of crystal is going to have a higher OG than your estimate of 1.051-1.054.
I am getting an estimate OF of something between 1.061
depending on the brand of extract used.
