So last time I brewed this;
My OG was lower than expected. People in this topic say it's down to not mixing correctly, so here's a breakdown of what I did;
Boiled LME, malt and hops for 45 mins (as the recipe calls for, I realise most recipes add different hops at different times!) When completed, strained through a muslin bag into a brew bucket, and poured boiling water through until it ran clear. Dissolved sugar (glucose) into the brew while still hot, and upon realising that OG was low, added more glucose to about 1030. topped up with cold water and stirred. Fermented, racked off into keg, clear in about 10 days, still drinking it (almost gone!)
It doesn't taste bad at all, far from a failure infact, as it's delicious. The hops seem very dominant compared to the malty flavors though, so I'd imagine my low OG was something to do with that.
I'm torn between a Budweiser clone and Purity Pure Gold clone, so just want to make sure my method is correct and I get the next one bang on!
