Noob question, so please bare with me.
I made a Muntons Barely wine today from their
extract can, and the directions were seriously vague.
A sidenote * said I could replace the 2.2lbs of sugar
required with Sprayed light Malt of equal amounts "for
more beer body", so I chose that route.
OG range was to be .060 - .064
My og = .054 @ 78 deg (not sure if this temp changes the gravity reading)
I could not figure out what happened, but it was in the
carboy, and getting near pitching temp by the time I realized
this OG problem. I can only figure the different sugar altered the
gravity reading, or I measured wrong on the water, and went over.
At any rate, I pitched the yeast, and air locked it.
Directions say the final gravity will be .008
Is there a method to bump up the gravity now that
the yeast have been pitched, or do I leave it be, and
deal with the mistake?
Any help is greatly appreciated?
Thanks in advance.
