I apologize for the vagueness. I am using WYEAST 1056 with a yeast starter plate. The
fermentation begins within 24 hours. I use a blow off line because it gets messy. I let it sit
in a secondary for ...

There's usually a pound or two of flaked corn (or rice) in a cream ale. I think if you bump
that up and remove the carapils you'd be pretty good. You might even cut back a bit on the base
malt too if ...

My guess is Alcohol by Weight vs Alcohol by Volume. The former used to be more popular, but ABV

I would double check with a hydrometer, maybe the conversion you are using is off for this

Probably accounting for the time it takes to transfer and boil 1/3 of the mash for each step.

I got a 23 on an IPA a bit over a year ago, I think a few of the bottles must have had a slow
