We're assuming here that you didn't go gung-ho from the get-go and start brewing all-grain for your first batch. 99.99% of people brew extract at first and sometime down the road they switch...

It basically means the yeast broke down some of the larger molecule sugars into smaller sugars, and now it's going to go back and eat the smaller sugars (and other by-products) now. It improves the...

If Starting Gravity (SG) - 75% (approximate attenuation for most yeast strains) = Finishing Gravity (FG), then the yeast have fermented all the sugars they can. If you have this ratio with your FG...
