Hmmm ... I don't know how to calculate if you have enough diastatic power, but based on the
description, I'd imagine thats a pseudo-basemalt that doesn't have enough to convert that many

I believe this is supposed to be a partial mash for a few reasons. I can explain the difference
if you don't know.1. You and the recipe called this out as a partial mash. Could be a confusion

I might be missing something due to the language "barrier" in the recipe but I think the
problem is in your mash. Did you make this recipe up yourself? I ask because I don't think any
of the malts in ...

A colder beer can hold more C02 at atmospheric pressure than warmer beer. If you fermented
colder than normal I would say you may have overshot it, but since it seems like it was
fermented normally an...

Did you sprinkle the yeast on top of the hops? One time I thought I had mold on my carboy neck
but I'm pretty sure it was just some sprinkled dry yeast that never made it down to the wort.

you do everything properly there is little to no perceptible difference. If you don't do
everything properly, well then you might be able to tell the difference, and it won't be better

The reason I asked about the hydrometer is that using a refractometer post fermentation often
leads to 1.030 readings if left uncalibrated. Your FG should have raised .008 points after
adding the extr...

A few comments.First off, are you sure you are using a hydrometer and not a refractometer? ARE
YOU SURE!!!If you are sure then, secondly, your original gravity was exactly that of the LME
and DME, mea...
