I dont think i'll have any problems with the high gravity, but just wanted your opinions. Thanks.
If my gravity is lower than it's supposed to be, then I'm concerned, and I'll add a supplementary boil if need be. But if my gravity is higher than it's supposed to be, but my volume is normal, then...um...I just smile.
Pat yourself on the back and enjoy a more alcoholic, maltier beer. Yeeehaw!
