Just popped open my first bottle of this brew. It came out high on the OG so its a bit stronger, over 7% if I remember correctly. All I can say is wow, what a delicious brown. It's still quite young, they've been in the bottles only about a month, so I expect it can only get better from here, now the test of patience.

Has anybody run into a watery taste with this really young?

I brewed a second batch, and although I hit all my numbers, it tasted watery when I took a hydrometer sample.

Seems I got a FG of 1.010 so slightly low.

Yeah, my first try with this recipe seemed a little thin to me too. I'm going to throw a little Munich in it next time to big up the mouth feel.

Far from watery or dry with mine, but it finished at 1.012 and had a starting gravity of 1.067. It is very good, with a great body. Maybe your water profile affected the body?

Mashed for 1 hour. Just checked and temp of mash was 148. Looks like I lost some degrees from the 154 mash temp :/

Mashing out (BIAB). Just stirred until I hit 170 and letting sit for 10 min. Will then begin boil and hop additions, ok folks?

Just pitched yeast. Starting gravity 1.051. Sample tastes nice, sweet, malty, and caramel. I reckon this is gonna be a fiiiiiiine brew.
