While I have never taken gravity readings on this particular beer (I have on the base ale recipe though, and they typically are around 1.050 OG and 1.008 FG or there about if I recall correctly). I will update the gravity readings when I brew this again in late April/early May. This is a fantastic summer brew, that is not only simple to make, but easy to drink too.
After finding the Brew Target software, I recalled correctly. It came up with an OG of 1.048 and a FG of 1.013 with and IBU of 24.8 and color of 7.6. Sounds about right to me.
