I'm not really asking for advice or anything, I know where I messed up and I assume that my problems will be fixed next time I brew... which is tomorrow!
So my first all grain batch, I didn't get my water volumes right. About 2.5 gallons came out of the mash, maybe a little more from the sparge, and so I barely had over 5 gallons in the boil kettle. After the boil was done, my dip tube got clogged, so I panicked and poured everything out into my bucket (only about 3 gallons post boil), topped up with 2 gallons of water and pitched the yeast, then thought to rack to a carboy to get rid of the hops and other solids (rather than rack directly from the boil kettle) which ended up being only 4 gallons so I topped up again with water. I figured it would just dilute fine like my extract beers always did, but after fermenting it tastes pretty thin and watery, no real malt or hops presence.
OG: 1.050, FG: 1.014
8lb 2 row, 2.5 lb malted red wheat, 0.7 lb caramunich. Many oz of columbus and one oz amarillo for an expected IBU of 45 (which was no doubt lower due to the higher actual gravity of the boil).
Anyways, no real questions, except just wondering if the same thing has happened to anyone else. There is nothing wrong with the beer, but, its really boring. I'll keg it and try to serve it to people I don't like as much as the people who get my good beers
