Was your 1lb of Amber DME Laaglander's by chance? My first batch used 3lbs of Coopers LME and 1lb of Amber DME. I used Laaglander's not knowing any better and the beer finished at 1.026 (it started at 1.052). Laaglander's is only about 50% fermentable compared to 75% with other extracts.
Primary: Double Wide Ale
