His yeast, WLP013 is a lower attenuator than the default that BS was using, so his FG went up and his ABV went down. If he were to sub WLP001 for 013, it attenuates better, so FG will go down and AVB will go up.

Ooops. I was using the wrong yeast. Doh!

I usually hit an FG within +/- .002 of what Beersmith predicts with most yeasts.
