Aren't there other reasons for under-attenuation though? Mine finished lower than I wanted despite pitching the "appropriate" amount of cells. But I probably rely on online calculators too much, but I like to see the numbers. They make me feel good

I supposed it could have been not enough oxygen. We aerated with a wine degasser, so that could be it. I had a friend helping me brew it, and he recently did an abyss clone and hit his fg exactly. He aerated the same way, so I have a hard time believing that's the problem.

And I only aerated by shaking, which we know isn't going to get enough dissolved oxygen.

And I used 1056 and got 79% attenuation, which is supposed to only get 73-77%.

I don't have good enough notes, but knowing me I'm sure I repitched a slurry and I used Mr. Malty to tell me how much.

Hmm, interesting. I repitched slurry as well. Did you mash at 153?

9 months after brewing/6.5 months after bottling. This beer is really getting good. Lots of great roasty flavors. Great mouthfeel too.

It's been 3.5 months since I brewed this. It's getting better, but it definitely needs time to develop.

Way overshot my gravity... I used the suggested 65% where I normally get around 75%. O.G. is 1.117 and its far to late to boil up a gallon to top it off. Can I add a gallon in tomorrow?

You could add it tommorow without a problem. I've also topped up straight from the tap without a problem.
