So I eventually managed to get all the ingredients together and brewed this this past Wednesday. Everything went perfect; probably one of my most stress free and best brews to date. The OG was somewaht higher than the recipe, 1.062.

On Thursday morning I checked on it but no bubbling from the airlock yet. Got home on Thursday night, still nothing. This morning, no bubbling although I could definitely smell that familiar fermenting smell in the air. This evening after work I checked and still no visible bubbling. So I decided to take a gravity reading, just for ****s n giggles. I was so surprised to see it's down to 1.022. Color me confused!

The gravity sample tasted freaking awesome though.

Turned out very nice, I must admit. Had quite a few bottles already. Three of my favorite hops I usually use in IPA's.

Brew day was bang on. All numbers bang on. Only little problem was 2oz of cascade at only 6%. I'm pretty new to this gig, is the .6% diff in AA gunna throw off the flavour too much?

You probably won't notice. It's only a few IBU difference

My beer went down to 1.006. I had the right mash temp. And OG was 1.051. Used Nottingham and fermented at 68f. Never missed my FG like that before. Any reason that might've happened?

More importantly is 1.006 that bad?

EDIT: I broke my old hydrometer when I finished this brew. Have not calibrated my new one..... maybe I'll do that before I get all bent out of shape. :S

Brewed this about a month ago. 1 week in the primary, 1 week in the secondary and 2 weeks in the bottles. Delicious! You have outdone yourself on this recipe. Gracias.

Default Noob question


I'm brewing this today. Am I supposed to pull out hops as I'm adding in the new hops? I'm using pellets, so it would be kinda tricky.
