Increase the pale malt in place of the two pounds of extract.

Hope it turns out well for you! My son and I just wrote up our list of beers to brew this summer, and I think this is on the schedule for next weekend.

Hope it turned out well for you. We just made a batch two weeks ago, am getting ready to rack and dry hop it.

Well I finished. Bottling.

Og - 1040.
Fg - 0997

From my research that means a % alcohol of 5.8%.

The smell while bottling was amazing and I can't wait to drink one.

Only concern is that when I tried a bit of liquid after measuring Fg it was a little bitter. I hope this mellows out while in the bottle.

A couple of thoughts and questions.

Your batch's original gravity is significantly lower than the recipe calls for - by 22 points. At 1.040, it is outside the range for an IPA and even low for an APA. None of which matters, except that often brewers will scale hops, bitterness and IBUs up or down in relation to the original gravity. Its a balance issue - more malt supports more hop bitterness.

That being said, a lot of brewers are making 'session' IPAs now and it looks like that may be what you've made. Lower original gravity, with lower abv, makes the beer more drinkable, but with abundant hop aroma, flavor and bitterness.

I'm not entirely understanding your final gravity reading - do you mean 1.009 or 0.9 or ?

Also, is it possible that your reading for your original gravity was off? Do you use a refractometer or a hydrometer to take your readings?
