Default What went wrong?

I brewed this last night, it was my first attempt at a higher-gravity beer like this. However, I missed my O.G. by a mile, and I'm hoping someone might be able to offer a possible explanation.

I brewed the recipe as listed, with 2 very minor modifications: I added 1 lb of dextrose to the boil, and I used 1.75 oz of Warrior for the bittering addition instead of Magnum.

As I was chilling (I recirculate through a plate chiller back into the kettle until I reach 70° F), I took a gravity sample. It was 1.060.

Huh!?! The recipe claims an O.G. of 1.077, and I added an extra pound of dextrose, so I should've been even higher.

This is the most grain I've ever mashed with, and BeerSmith directed me to mash with 19 quarts of water, at 148° F. I stirred quite well (or so I thought), and I even popped the lid and gave it another good stir 20 minutes into the mash (I never do this). So how did I miss my O.G. so badly? Where did all those extra sugars go?

I batch sparged with 4.75 gallons of 170° water.

I'm quite disappointed, but I'm hopeful the beer will still turn out nicely.

Bkorver,

Big deal...just some water boiling next to your carboy. So what?

Just kidding...that's a heck of a ferment!

Was thinking of throwing in some simcoe at flame out I enjoy the piney aroma. Would this clash with the centennial?

I dry hopped with simcoe, magnum and Columbus, so I'll let you know.

I've never heard of using magnum as an aroma hop. What aroma does it give off?

Good question! It's partially an experiment to see how dry hopping with the bittering hop compliments the aroma alongside the other late addition and aroma hops. Could be a mess, who knows?

I brewed the extract version of this a few weeks ago. I used Briess pilsner extract instead of light extract. The FG was 1.014. I have to say it is still pretty sweet. I'm wondering if this extract recipe wouldn't do better with a swap of 10% of the DME with simple sugar.

Hope character is great, its just not as drinkable as I hoped.
