That's probably right tommy. Discrepancies are probably due to different temps when people are taking gravity.

I tried one of these last night after 3 weeks in the bottle. Could still use a bit more aging as carbonation was not quite there but I really liked this beer.

Still a bit lacking in maltyness and the body could be thicker for a dark beer but overall I was very happy and maybe the best gf beer I have brewed to date

I used Columbus instead of NB hops as I had them on hand already. The beer has a nice sweetness and complexity that many if my other gf beers have lacked. Must be the d180 and molassss.

When I brew again I may bump up the maltdextrin to 1 lb and increase the hops slightly

Might also be good to add some burbon, coffee or smokiness in secondary or at bottling
