Hello all, new member, new brewer.Have a question;
We just finished our first all grain brew, a SNPA clone and when transferring to the secondary, the gravity reading seemed low. Mashed at 156 for an hour, full conversion tested, sparged at 170 for an hour. Boiled an hour. Cooled to 72, pitched Wyeast 1056.
The post boil gravity was 1.054 ( no pre-boil was taken ), the gravity after a week in the primary was 1.004. That gives an ABV of 6.7%, an an apparent attenuation of 92%, it seems very low.
The beer was clear smelled like a pale ale and tasted decent, a little bright, drier than I expected, but not way off.
We added an ounce of Cascade when we put it in the secondary, and I think we'll be ready to bottle in a week or so.
I'm just curious if the low reading is a precursor to a problem of some sort?
Thanks for the input,
