looking at your numbers I see an estimated Original Gravity to be 1.043 SG and an actual Measured Original Gravity: 1.053 SG. Thus, based on your results with an actual OG of 1.053 would you recommend that I use 1.053 or 1.043 as an estimated target gravity?

When I first made this I had never used my barley crusher mill so I over shot my efficiency a bit. When I made the second batch I tried to stay around the same. You don't want to get to light on this one.

Did you mean "You don't want to go light on this one" implying that an OG closer to 1.053 is ideal? So if my question is redundant with the first one but I am thinking of brewing 8 gallons of this and using American Ale yeast for 4 gallons and a Cream Ale Blend yeast for the other 4 gallons.

Yes, shoot for around 1.053. Sorry, I read my post again and realize it wasn't very clear. A split batch of this sounds interesting, I'm really curious to see how the two yeasts change the overall profile of the beer.

Thanks for answering all of my questions. I will let you know how this turns out. PM me in 7-8 weeks if I forget. We are expecting our second child this fall so I can easily forget about doing some things I intended on doing in the near future.

Well I screwed up my brewing notes and kegged these today after the had been fermenting for 3 weeks instead of 4 weeks. Do you think that missing week will be any sort of a problem? I am really looking forward to drinking this so I could be drinking soon and thus I may have kegged it too soon.

I think three weeks is plenty. Unless I use a complex grain bill, high OG, or a yeast that really needs the extra time to clean up I usually keg after a 14 day primary.
