Hey guys, I did the Big River Brown Ale
. Midwest did not supply me with what the original gravity should read. Is there any way you can tell from just the ingredients?
The original gravity I calculated was:
"1.054" (I suppose this is right. It's where there is the 1.0, then 10-90 then 1.10. I got "54" under the 1.0)
I got "13 1/2" under the "0-35" place.
And 7% on the percentage.
Some useful notes:
- I did the original gravity BEFORE I pitched the yeast (is this correct, or should I do it afterwards?
- Please note that the wort's temperature was not accurately measured. I bought the wrong thermometer, and it starts at 100, not 50. So I *ASSUMED* it was 75 degrees after 45 minutes. It may have been up to 80.
What do you guys think? Is this reading close and is it around the range it should be? What do you think the FG should read? Thanks for anyone who could help me on this. Any other useful tips on measuring gravity next time? Thanks!
