I'm really sorry if this is a stupid question, but I'm still learning a lot about brewing.
I intended to brew a high-gravity beer, but I used too much strike water and accidentally missed the OG by about .01 points. The target gravity was 1.072 and I only got 1.062. The beer turned out tasting great (its a stout), but I'm worried that the next time I brew it and achieve the correct gravity, it will taste completely different.
If I like the taste of the beer, should I alter the recipe to make the target OG close to 1.062? Or will the taste of the beer not change much if I keep the recipe the same and aim for the original target gravity of 1.072?
I know the alcohol content will change, but will the taste change much if I reach the target OG next time?
