    You're confusing the temp of the rehydrating water with wort temp. wort temps are cooler. You
    rehydrate in water that's 90-105F to give the yeast's cell walls more strength. That's for
    about 20-30 min...

    Sounds fine,except for the 34C wort temp at pitch time. After the initial cool down with just
    cold water,I drain that,BK back into sink. Fill sink to brim with ice & top that off with cold
    water. Gett...

    i have absolutely no input on your topicbut, with that screen-name, were you (by chance) a Navy
    Corpsman?I am a member of the Royal Canadian Navy as a Naval Weapons Technician.

    For a OG 1.065,1.014-1.018 FG would be the average range expected. I think some of you are
    boiling LME's too much,or pitching poor quality yeast & maybe even too warm getting 1.020 FG's
    like that. Had...

    Thank you! This all makes a lot more sense now:)According to my calculations for the one gallon
    batch you brewed you should have used .77oz/21.8grams of priming sugar to prime your beer to
    2.3 volumes...

    Please do not take offense, just trying to help:)Please read through the thread you started and
    try to provide the following:1. Batch Size2. Original gravity3. Final gravity4. Actual amount
    of priming...

    "There was no longer any activity and reached a final gravity of 1.065 for 3 days"Huh?Sorry
    about the wording. There was no longer any visual signs or evidence of active fermentation and
    the gravity r...

    Did you test it as completely fermented? Or bubbling stopped? Stupid question,but it has been
    done before. Or stalling out before it knocks off those last couple of points...The final
    gravity was read...

    your grain bill will not really affect carbonation. beer that is not fully fermented can over
    carbonate with whatever sugar you add to the bottles. an infection can also cause gushers.The
    fermentation...

    Did I understand that fermentation was not complete when you primed and bottled?Sorry, The
    fermentation had stopped. I did not word that properly.NavyMarine1978
