Did you use LME? I've noticed a certain brand of LME I've used consistently came up with a lower OG than it should have based on what the software said. DME has always been pretty consistent for me...

Couldn't different makers of LME dry it out more/less and have varying amounts of water in it? Wouldn't that be a way to miss your OG using extract?

That's great. Just great. That's why you always put a box of nails on top of your beer to increase lethality.

Yeah it was LME. I even did the math by hand and it should have come up with a higher OG. Oh well. I'll make sure I check my preboil gravity better next time.

There's a good chance that this 'cidery' taste that new brewers may encounter when using sugar may in fact be acetaldehyde due to the fact they are pitching 1/4oz (7g) of yeast that's been on a supermarket shelf for months into a full 5gal (19L) batch.
