I was hoping someone would as this question. I was concerned.
This was a Brewer's Best Kit with the following list of fermentables:
3.3 lbs. Light LME
3.3 lbs. Amber LME
3 lbs. Pilsen DME
1 lbs. Light Candi Sugar
8 oz. Maltodextrin
Yeast is Nottingham.
4 oz. aromatic grains steeped for 20 min. a 155%
Checking my instructions again, the ABV% for this kit should be 8.5% - 9.0%, so I'm a little low.
Beer Tools Pro showed that this recipe should yield about 8.37% ABV.
Is this done. Any suggestions? I'm not in a crazy hurry to get this ale down my throat; I just want to get it done right.
