My buddy Sean came over with his nut brown ale kit, so we brewed two Brewer's Best kits today, side by side on my gas stove. Chaos anyone?
I put together another IPA (loved the first one) and came in low on the OG reading again, but not by much (1.040). Sean's beer used almost 8lb of extract plus some specialty grains and the OG should have been 1.055 - 1.060, but we read 1.080!!!
I don't think it was mixed it well enough before we took the sample.
We had a blast and I look forward to doing that again soon.
