I just made this but had an original gravity of 1.034...yea really off. This is my first all grain attempt which had lots of hiccups along the way but I dont know what would have cause such a difference in OG. Any idea what could be causing this? Perhaps my lautering schedule wasnt right? I mashed for just over an hour and the first iodine test showed that there was good conversion.

Can you post your recipe along with mash, sparge, and boil volumes and times?

I followed the original recipe as close as possible. My mash temp set around 148-150, lower then I anticipated and I tried adding some more hot water, might have added to much. After an hour in had converted so I began run off till clear and added more hot water once most had drained. And I boiled for about an 1 hour, with 6.5 gallons.

This is going to sound stupid but, you milled the grains, right? I only ask because believe it or not, I've seen cases where the person hadn't actually milled the grain and they were trying to mash with unmilled malt.

Assuming you milled the grain properly, the usual culprits are mash temperature (sounds like yours was good), mash technique (thoroughly stirred, all dough-balls broken up), sparging, or even a simple misreading of the hydrometer. Maybe the sample you took was from a thinner portion of the wort as the heavier sugars settled to the bottom or something.

I milled the grains at the homebrew store...I have a feeling it might be stirring, or maybe sparging. My set mash temp was about 148, a little lower then 152. Thank you for the info though that was really helpful, Im going to double check the hydrometer reading right now!

The extra water definitely could be part of it, depending on how much more you added. If you read the recipe out of BYO, which was allegedly provided/confirmed by Stone, it calls for a 90 min boil, which would have reduced the volume, hence raised your SG. Still, you are far off the expected. What was you final volume of wert? Do you have your mash and sparge volumes handy? Or maybe this was a no sparge effort?

Just in case there's any doubt, this is an amazing recipe. This beer immediately became my favorite brew. I'm torn between drinking it myself because it's so delicious, and trying to make it last as long as possible so I can share it with my fellow beer snobs and have them marvel at how good it is.

I'm already working this recipe into my schedule to make it a regular on one of my taps. It really is fantastic.

I usually end up with just under 6 in the fermenter, 5.5 to secondary, and just a touch over 5 in the keg...
