Yes. I stirred after the boil. Then after cooling around 80 degrees and in the fermenter I shook to aerate. Hmm, but maybe some of the water I added didn't get mixed thouroghly. I'm doubting now. I'll stir tonight and retest. I also didn't see any bubbles this morning. Hoping activity picks up. Ill report back. Thanks!

Not unusual for OG readings to be lower than expect with extract -- commonly a problem when the top up water and wort are not mixed adequately.

Don't open up now and take a reading...just leave it be. Increasing the chance of getting an infection is not worth knowing what the OG is at this point in time. IMO.

Is this bad?
Did you by any chance use LME instead of DME???

In the garage brewing this up as I type. 1 pound 40L just pulled, 6 gallons water almost to a boil - 6 ounces of whole leaf Amarillo (store did not have pellets) ready to go in in stages including dry hopping - two stage DME addition - with maybe a bit extra (1/2 lb) just for kicks. Or not.....

ETA: Propane tank almost empty but I think I will have enough for an hour........

ETA II: Holey F-Me With a Picth Fork! This shye smells so good! The HOPS!!!

2oz Amarillo 7.2% AA (60 mins)

no. no dry hop this time. when i plugged it in to beersmith it says 53 IBU. so if it doesnt have enough aroma i will dry hop next time. OG was 1.068 if it finishes at 1.017 it should be 6.6% ABV, so i think 53 IBUs would be fitting. we will see though. I DO have 2oz of fuggles laying around that I COULD dry hop it with if i decide to. but i think if i decide to dry hop i would just go pick up some more amarillo to keep with the theme. i plan on leaving it in primary AT LEAST 3 weeks, so i have plenty of time to decide

I entered this beer into the New England Regional Homebrew competition a couple of weeks back. My results came in the mail yesterday and even though I did not place, I got scores of 36 and 37, or 36.5 Overall. Pretty happy with the results for my first competition and my first try at an IPA.
