    Well I decided to dig out my notes from this batch and found my OG reading. I measured my FG
    again and discovered that I'm at ~5.5% ABV. My recipe calculated 8.25%, so something definitely
    went wrong....

    I'm planning to reference my notes and take a new gravity reading tonight. I want to double
    check myself and provide the needed numbers to understand what happened to my batch.A hearty
    thank you to ev...

    Hmmm.... I guess this is similar to what I was thinking about. I was planning to boil some DME
    to add sugar to my beer. I know there is a ton of dormant yeast in there after adding a second
    batch. Isn...

    A few more Qs to add to Adam's list:At what temp did you mash?For how long did you mash? Did

    Can anyone tell me whether my "fix" is likely to work? I don't know what else to do..... I
    spent a lot of time and effort making this batch and I can't bear to toss it out. :mad:

    Thanks for the feedback on using canned pumpkin in the mash. Maybe I screwed up something else
    in order to have such low efficiency.I guess I could use Beer Tools to calculate how much DME
    to add to m...

    I've had a good run with all grain batches.... never had a stuck sparge, stuck fermentation, or
    any contamination. Now my streak of 14 batches is broken sadly.I normally use pie pumpkin
    chunks in a gr...

    I have no idea on the fermentables issue, but I have done pumpkin ales with canned pumpkin both
