I don't know what went wrong! Here is my receipe:

5lbs Pilsen Dry Malt Extract
1 can of Munich Liquid Malt Extract
1lb Franco Belges CaraMunich
2oz of US Hallertau (1.5oz at 60 minutes. 1/2oz at 15 minutes)
White Labs 820 Octoberfest Yeast

I did a full boil starting at 5.6 gallons. Steeped grains at 155 for 30 minutes.

Added extract and boiled 60 minutes.

Any ideas out there?

My last three batches were spot on.

1.074 sounds good, what did you want it to be?

I think so to. I added more water to it, aerated and put it back in the fermentor. That should fix the problem. I should have started with six gallons instead of 5.6 I figured out.
