In regards to your OG @ 1.056. If you took the sample and the sample was 90 degrees the corrects OG would be 1.060. 85 degrees is 1.059. You say you added water to 72, did you pull the sample after you added the water?

Yep. Just before I put the lid on the fermenting bucket.

Well, the LC 140 Fire Pit Wheat got bottled yesterday. FG came in at 1.010. Right on target with what BrewersFriend.com's calculations said it would be. That FG says I have 6.5+% ABV. Once again, right on target with what the calculations said.

And it is a little reddish. I use Newcastle Brown Ale 18.6 oz bottles for 12 beers. This beer kinda looks like the NBA beers. Hoping for great taste, now.

The hydro sample tells me it's got a little bitterness, very little, kinda dry and not much sweetness at all. Looking forward to it in about 4 weeks.

Well, my first from scratch beer turned out AWESOME!!! A little dry, a hint of bitter on the front end, hint of grains in the middle and a slight hint of citrus on the back end.

Cleared up really nice in the bottle. Shoulda secondaried it and then bottled, but with quarter inch of trub in bottom of bottle, the clarity in glass is very nice.

Has a nice aroma. Can really smell the Centennial Hops.

I gotta say, I am super impressed with this brew. Next, Coconut Porter or another Triple Chocolate Stout. Or maybe a standard type of beer till porter or stout time. The porter and stout will be for when my buddy get back from Iraq.
