    For example...if you made a recipe that would have given you 5 gallons of 1.065 wort, only
    topping up to 4 gallons would result in an OG of approx. 1.081. Assuming a complete
    fermentation, those extra...

    What was your recipe? All-grain or extract? How big a batch size?The recipe was a bock. It was
    an extract recipe with specialty grains and intended final volume was 5 gallons. I ended up
    with 4.

    I'm a little disappointed that this thread is so short. I had a similar issue with a bock. I
    brewed and missed my gravity but nailed FG. The calc ABV went from an expected 6.5% to a
    staggering 8% or s...

    How long has it been fermenting? It does not look entirely done to me. I do about 3 weeks then
    package and my beers are pretty much clear. Sometimes the inside of the Better Bottle are
    coated with dri...

    Oh. Forgot to mention. The blanket is to keep the sun out, nothing more. It's maintaining a
    66-68 degree temp sitting right next to an A/C vent.

    I'm not a fan of heavy pine flavors myself,but I can see where a little of it mixed with other
    hop flavors could be enjoyable at this point. I didn't think that way at first myself. But we
    all have di...

Hey man, don't let some of these asses ruin your experience with HBT. Some people get awfully sensitive when others voice opinions that are contrary to to theirs. Some people are just inherently combative and want to start shit with others for no apparent reason. I've had a few people jump on my case for asking questions that they didn't feel were worthy of their answer to them......why in the f*ck are you reading my thread then. When I was building my keezer I had some asshole tell me that he was a cabinet maker of 30 years and that my build wasn't worth a shit. That one got ugly and the moderators stepped in, deleted all of the posts and ousted him from HBT.

Yes, there are some pricks on this forum, but for the most part there are far more generous and helpful people. Don't let a few assholes ruin this for you, because HBT has been the most valuable resource that I have found for home brewing. Later.
