I brewed up a barleywine yesterday. My intended OG was 1.113. My pre-boil gravity was low so i added 1# of dme.
I had collected 7 gallons and boiled for 2 hours to get me down to 5.5 gallons.
I ended up with about 5.25 gallons in the carboy but my gravity was 1.109.
Can i still add some dme to raise the gravity or do i just let it ride?

I wouldn't. You're not that far off for a gravity that high. My vote is to let it ride.

Close enough, don't mess with it. You are only off about 3%, that is pretty darn close.

I kind of planned on leaving it, but figured i would see what the knowledge of this board had to offer.
Thanks for the input
