Last quick update and then I think I'm done. My hydrometer is off. I set it in filtered water
and it sinks about (what i can figure) .006 farther than 1.000. I had gotten water in it
(there's a hole o...

it should taste just fine, albeit a bit lighter than you planned. FWIW, i've found that the

I conditioned this for a while, after 3 months it was getting really nice, 6 months amazing.

I'm a noobie to homebrewing. This will be only my 3rd batch and I'm starting by doing just 1
