I'm almost done brewing an english mild.
I overshot OG a little so I thought I would get a few more ticks of ABV out of it. Recipe gave a target OG of 1.03* and mine was 1.040.
Now this might be my problem, I didn't have any dry extract, and made a starter with corn sugar (I know bad idea) it was only overnight, and fermentation at 68F appeared normal, and fast. I have 2.5 days now - three hydro readings at 1.013-1.014
giving me about 3.4ABV
Would repitching a small amount get it down to 1.009?
Should I just not worry and drink it up? and make the next one without the starter mistake?
