Oh ok. I didn't realize that the alcohol was messing with the refractometer readings. According to this calculator
my actual FG is 1.009 giving my an ABV of roughly 4.8% which is much better
I've been trying to figure out why my ferments are coming in so high since I got my new toy
Does anyone know if promash has a built in calculator to compensate for fermenting beer like that other calculator I posted?
