oh yeah, i was onto my third hb when i got that far. its all good, i got a pretty good amount to evaporate, and while it cooled it continued to evaporate. i guess i was less concerned about the volume of finished beer, and more about it being watered down. my sg was 1.046, which was what the kit said (1.042-1.046) and i think i left about a beer worth in with the hops and hot break. but its in the primary now. i had a taste of the hydrometer sample, and it was really good, a little thin maybe, but the taste was good. might have to experiment next time to get the chewy mouthfeel.
