I am all set to brew this tomorrow. At 72% Beersmith is telling me 5.7%. I will be using BRY-97 American West Coast Dry Yeast. This will be for a competition in my local Homebrew Club so I want to try and stay in range.
Were you spot on at 72% effeciency and did you get a real strong fermentation in order to hit 6-6.5%?
I am trying to figure out what I might need to tweak, if anything.
