As of this afternoon my first brew is in primary (Scottish Light Ale). Whew, I feel like a cigarette! (kidding, I don't smoke)
I do have a question however. The starting gravity measured low at 1.031 when the recipe says it should be 1.038-42. But I did take the reading after I aerated the wort, did that screw it up? Or was it something else?
It was an extract kit fyi. I have all my times recorded down if that will help you guys in coming up with answers. I'm just wondering if there's a generally newbie mistake that I probably committed.
Thanks in advance for all the help!
