I put the cooled wort of this recipe onto the yeast cake of a previous batch. After dumping the cooled wort, I made my way into the house with my wort-filled primary then I tripped up the stairs of my patio and dumped about a gallon of wort all over myself and the kitchen floor.
After I finished cleaning the mess, I realized that I forgot to grab an OG before I dumped the wort on the yeast. So, I grabbed a reading and it said 1.066 at 74 degrees. I didn't think this was right, so I spun the hydrometer around to keep it from hitting the sides of the cylinder, and got the same reading. I then proceeded to check the hydrometer in tap water and got .998 at 74 degrees.
Am I right in thinking that the amount of yeast that was left in the bottom of the bucket could have caused my OG to read that high? What sort of OG would you expect to see?
