Whats the difference between apparent attenuation vs. real attenuation?
I am ready to transfer my Pliney The Elder clone to Keg, and took my final gravity, which came out to 1.016. In beersmith, it says my apparent attenuation is 77.7%, but real attenuation is 63.7%.
I did not quite hit my FG that I was targeting, and the beer came out to approximately 7.9%. I was kinda shooting for 8-8.5%.
I used whitelabs 001 cal ale yeast, with a nice starter. BTW, the beer tasted EXCELLENT!
