Posted in thread: Flanders red with WLP-655 sour mix on 07-12-2011 at 01:13 AM
I made a Flanders red recently but got a higher OG than I wanted at 1.070. It fermented down to

bleach, carry a...

I have seen many recipes with much more than 2lbs of crystal. Also, I dont think I've ever made

Do I have my beersmith configured incorrectly? Obviously a longer boil will yeild a higher
gravity. When I change my boil time, the estimated OG stays the same. For some reason I thought
it took boil ...
