Rather than going back and forth asking questions, here is a link to my recipe with very
detailed direction of how I did it. Recipe is at the very bottom of the page. Hopefully this
helps and you can ...

Did you ever end up adding in some Lactic? A guy at the LHBS here brewed a batch and didn't add
any. He was disappointed just like you and noted the same lack of tropical fruit. Not sure his

Just out of curiosity, how are you dry hopping this and are you taking that time into account?
If I remember right, this recipe has a 7 day dry hop.

If you are only shooting a few points low (2-6), I'd actually say it is probably BeerSmith and
the way you take measurements. A fundamental "law" of brewing is that post mash/pre-boil you
will never h...

Yup definitely can manipulate hop characteristics by adjusting the timing and temperature of

If you don't mind, details would be nice. I'd be interested to see what your experiences are.

probably not a problem. I would have thought that the bottles with a hop pellet in them would
have all foamed more than normal. I'll bet you just opened it too soon after chilling and that,

My original miscalculation was based on beersmith number. It's why your target OG was 1.065 and
you actually had 1.081. If you plug in the same exact numbers as all grain you get the correct
Posted in thread: Low Attenuation (S-05) in Milk Porter on 08-02-2015 at 09:18 PM
How big was the batch size? Using extract and those grains to get up to 1.081 would be around
3.75 gal. If it was larger, like a typical 5 gallon batch, I would question the instrument
making the grav...

Let it go. Hope it has a lacto infection and maybe you have just made the first black Berliner
