Default Mapfelwein OG?

I followed Cheese's recipe last night. It's percolating happily beside me now.

I used three pounds of honey and one quart of maple syrup as per the recipe. However, my original gravity came in at 1.070. That isn't much different than my Scotch Ales. I was expecting a higher OG.

Has anyone measured their OG for this recipe?

I'm considering adding a second quart of maple syrup in an effort to bring the gravity up to around 1.10.

Any thoughts?

Brent

Default

the part you are not counting on is that your Scotch Ale doesn't finish out at .990.
You are going to be at 10% or so.
