I used DME but did a 5gallon batch and hit the gravity on the nose. What was your initial gravity with the liquid malt extract? And did you have a 6gallon batch?

Remember- the recipe in the book is not for an exact clone. That's a recipe based on one of the test batches (10 gallons) used to formulate the final AG recipe for this beer. The brewery also buys ingredients in bulk so there are lots of unknown variables.

You have to be cautious with Saffron. There are definitely some
Saffrons that aren't full-blown Saffrons. If I remember correctly,
what constitutes REAL Saffron is the stigma and ONLY the stigma of the crocus
flower. Some companies mix the stigmas in with other parts of the
flower as a sort of "filler" which drives the cost down from way high
to reasonable. I remember watching and episode of "Good Eats" with
Alton Brown one night when he was making paella and he explained the
Saffron industry and what to be aware of. It's definitely worth a
watch in your spare time. Here's a link to his little bit on Saffron: http://bit.ly/orBGLs

I finally got around to brewing this today. The only deviation from the recipe is I did the 75 min boil with 2.5 gallons, as I don't have anything big enough yet to brew 6 gallons. Other than that I followed the instructions and topped off to 6 gallons. Pitching temp was 68 degrees. Target OG was supposed to be 1.086, mine came in at 1.058. Any ideas what could have happened? I mixed and stirred the wort and top off water for about 5 minutes to ensure it mixed well. The only thing I can think of is it was supposed to really be 5 gallons? Would boiling 6 gallons for 75 minutes boil off 1 gallon? However it shows it being a 6.5 gallon batch. Or is the Muscat grape juice figured into the formula even though you add it after 3 days?

I'm sure it's still going to turn out great, just confused why the OG came in so low.

I think the muscat juice sugar is factored in. Mine came out with a high abv. Brewed 6 gal in Feb and its still a little hot. I used dme instead of lme and my OG was 1.070.

Thanks I used LME. Glad to see I'm not the only one to miss TOG.

Krausen is finally going down a little. Had me concerned for a minute. I have it in one of the new Coopers fermentors which is holds somewhere between 7-8 gallons with no airlock, it came right up to the lid before going back down some....whew!
