Hydrometer reading this morning read 1.020 at a solid 74 degrees. OG was 1.064. The final gravity stated in the recipe is 1.008, so we have a ways to go, but it tastes great, and is tasting much more...

Thank you all for the great responses. I will do a gravity reading today. I WAS told that the Belgian stalls out more easily than the French, but that it was a yeast worth using for the flavor. I was...

Great! Thank you. Does this make any sense?

1.064 OG minus

1.008 FG = .056

.056 x 131.25 = 7.35 ABV

Does that look about right?

Assistance with interpreting hydrometer readings please!

I have been looking through the numerous threads regarding the use of a hydrometer, and, believe it or not, I am still confused. I brewed a graff and took an original gravity reading. It read 64. I...

That happens to me all the time! I HATE that! It happened with a case of beer that I had, also. I still don't know where it went. I also am not sure where I am right now.
