    I would just leave it and make the adjustment next time. Should be okay.Sent from my iPhone

    Did you sparge? If so, fly sparge or batch sparge? I recommend you take a preboil gravity
    measurement. Had you done that, you would have known your OG was going to be off and could have
    adjusted with ...

    What is your mash efficiency? Have you measured that preboil? I have about 80% mash efficiency
    but less than 70% brewhouse efficiency. This is due to excessive post boil wort for me because
    I have mor...

    An hour of chilling seems excessive. Did you stir the wort around your chiller?If you are
    filling a 55 gallon tub half full to sanitize, that will become expensive for sanitizer. Before
    you look into ...

    Measure with the hydrometer. But also, my experience with the refractometer conversion
    calculation using beersmith was right one everytime I tried the calculator and compared to the
    hydrometer reading...

    Here are some things I would look at if I were you. I'm not sure what you have and have not
    considered.Mash temp. Are you sure your thermometer was reading accurately? At times they need
    calibrated. C...

    MLT = Mash/Lauter TunThis is referred to as such when it is the vessel you would perform the
    mash and also sparging (rinsing) the grains.HLT = Hot Liquor tankI think its only necessary if
    you are goin...

    US-05 (dry) is the same strain as WLP001(liquid). Just thought I'd share since a previous
    poster mentioned it and that should give you some more reassurance.

    Looks normal to me for day four. Every beer ferments differently. You should leave it alone for
    another week then check the gravity with a hydrometer. It will start to clear as the yeast
    drops out of ...

    I'm no water expert. If you posted in the brew science forum you'd get the best advice from
    Martin and AJ in my opinion. Not sure if they will see this post. I think you said in a
    different thread you...
