I'm not sure where to post this, but I brewed (and bottled!) and videotaped yesterday while my husband watched our 8 week old daughter
Cheers. I would have been drinking homebrew while I brewed but I'm all out
I spent $14.37 for this batch. What do your LME recipes run?? Also, I ended up with a hydrometer reading of 1.060 when the recipe (5.5 lbs amber LME, 2 lbs steeped grains) called for an OG of 1.038. :scratch head: I took the reading at 63 F. I can't figure out what happened. Is there someplace where I can calculate what it should really be? (and try to figure out how it got so high). Could it be because I steeped the grains too long (ended up being 40 minutes) or squeezed the grain bags too much??
