won't work I ha...

I need a fresh set of eyes so to speak to help me figure out what's going on here. I had a keg

ruling it out...

I think the issue with your OG is measuring at too high a temperature. Just because you can
correct for measurements at 160 degrees doesn't mean they're accurate. Try to take a small
sample and cool i...

Hopping looks fine, Im assuming you're doing a 1 gallon batch? I'm drinking an amber right now
that I find delicious, If I recall did a fwh with centennial, then I had 2.5 oz cent./cascade
(for 6 gall...
