I live in Louisville. Which brewery are you talking about? Though we're known for bourbon, there's some good beer being brewed here.

I'd love to travel North and hit the IN and MI breweries....

Great question. I know a Hefeweizen sure tastes amazing out of the traditional tall 0.5L glass. Allows the head to build up properly.

Wouldn't dispute anything said on here.

Good thing is grains are cheap to replace. Can dump em in compost bin if they've gone bad.
Hops should be no problem since they're vacuum sealed.

Ericbw,

Had the same issue almost exactly.

I calculated the OG to be just above 1.060 but it measured at 1.050-1.052.

Still in the primary so not sure how far down the gravity will drop.
