Posted in thread: Hydrometer Reading - very confused on 10-06-2015 at 12:59 AM
That reading is 0.985, as described by you. However, that still sounds very low, as does your
starting gravity. I think you're reading your hydrometer wrong.
Posted in thread: Beer serving temperature on 10-06-2015 at 12:54 AM
I prefer all of my beers cold (30s), whether that be a light pilsner or a stout. I know my
preferences don't match all the styles, but I don't care. I like what I like.

Favorite thing besides drinking it? Easy. Brewing it. Next question.
Posted in thread: Why does my LHBS make me feel like a noob? on 10-02-2015 at 05:47 PM
Called my LHBS to ask some advice about my spiced holiday ale I have brewing. During the
conversation my LHBS tells me in passing to leave the beer in primary for 2 weeks and bottle.I
mention I always...

Have you ever read a book on brewing?Sure have. Warming up an ale to room temp for cleanup is
not a universally agreed upon step.

I also think something changed in my efficiency especially my mash efficiency. I get my grains
milled at my lhbs and for awhile I had my beersmith profile set at 68% and was hitting all my

It sounds to me like a measuring error. That's the only thing I can think of if your preboil
gravity was right on after being properly cooled down.
Posted in thread: Adding muscadine to a stout on 10-01-2015 at 01:17 AM
If I were going this route, I would make the muscadines into wine, and then add the wine to the
beer after fermentation. I don't know that this would go well in a stout though... But YMMV.
Have you ev...
Posted in thread: Favorite quick turn around recipe on 10-01-2015 at 01:11 AM
Saisons are actually one of my slower turnaround beers. They're in secondary for a minimum of
two months. My quick turnaround beers are IPAs. They're best drank fresh. I try to go from
grain to glass ...

I'm a bit confused. You mentioned both 7 gallons and 7.5 gallons. If you only had 7 gallons
preboil, but planned for 7.5, that could explain your low gravity readings post boil.
