I have this fermenting @ 66 degrees right now. It smells freaking crazy!. It totally cleared my sinuses when I smelt the airlock! I missed target gravity though. All grain version came out to 1.052

Wouldn't your boil/batch size effect your OG as well? If you want to do a 6 gallon batch you might need to scale ingredients accordingly

It would, but in the case of the question asked, they didn't pay attention and interchanged liquid and dry malt extract.. They don't work like that.

Nope, followed the recipe exactly and used the DME. Put the OP extract recipe in your software and tell me what you get. It does not equal 1.065 at 5 gallon batch like it says it should.

Well the screenshot you posted above shows that you entered 6 lbs LME in your brewing software ...

What does it equal at 5 gallons? You have a 6 gallon batch entered in your screenshot.

Also you have to be sure you're mashing the grains (not just steeping them), as this is a PM recipe. At least some of these grains (e.g. Munich) must be mashed and won't do much good if they're just steeped, which would cost you some gravity points (though if you set your efficiency to 99% in the software as you describe, maybe that wouldn't be a factor).

[EDIT] I threw the PM #s from the first page into the TastyBrew.com calculator (with a 6 gallon boil for 5 gallon batch, 6lbs DME, and the remaining grains set to mash) and got an OG of 1.067.
