Hey, thanks for the recipe. I brewed this on 12/19 and had a pretty active fermentation, which has died off now (been 10 days now). I only used 7lbs of extract, and I'm concerned I didn't top off the water in the fermenter enough, as I used 2 gallons of water in the boil and then added 2 more to the fermenter (for some reason assuming that the extract and other ingredients made up the difference!).
Anyway I ended up with a slightly higher OG, at 1.062. Definitely could be explained if I didn't add enough water at top-off.
I took a reading today and the SG was 1.021, significantly higher than I had hoped for, especially since I started with a higher OG than expected. I know it's possible there's still fermentation going on and it will continue to drop but the high SG makes me a little worried.
I pitched at 70 degrees with 1 swollen smack-pack of Wyeast 1968.
Any thoughts? Should I just let it sit another 10 days as prescribed and see if the SG continues to drop?
The sample I tasted after taking the reading was delicious btw.
