SG-1.1028 for 2.5 gallon

This is rather high for just 7lbs malt extract don't you think? And does anyone know where I can convert 2.5 gallon reading of SG to 5 gallons because I took the wort out of just 2.5 gallon brew pot, not when it got mixed in with 2.5 more gallons of water, thanks guys.

Of coarse it's high...that **** is super concentrated without the remaining 2.5 gallons of water.

You can put it in beersmith and get an estimate.

I just brewed Yuri's Pumpkin ale at 1.055 and beersmith est 1.056...it's pretty close.

I just brewed a similar recipe and came out with an OG of about 1.055. Also just bottled mine yesterday so it looks like we're on the same brewing schedule. Check back in three weeks, I'll be interested to know how yours turns out.

Since this is half and half I would think it would be a simple math problem. One half is 1.1028 and the other is 1.0000 so you take the difference (.1028) and divide that by 2 (.0514) and you end up with 1.0514 which should be really close.
