Also a solid idea. The recipe called for either a can of LME or a certain amount of dextrose. It was a lot of dextrose, which I wasn't comfortable with the flavor it might impart, so maybe I can try 50/50. Heck, maybe I'll do the next one all-dextrose and simply blend them, if I can't attenuate this batch any further.

As for the people who asked... OG was 1.048 when corrected to 60°. In 48 hours it was already down to 1.024.
