What are you expecting you FG to be?
Are you calibrating your hydrometer to the temperature?
I was expecting it to be 1.020 -1.017ish
Yes. I corrected for temperature. Checked it wit 2 different hydrometers, just to be sure
Assuming you were at 68 degrees for the duration
Sorry if I wasn't clear. I pitched into 68 degree wort, but the fermometer read 64 for all the time it's been in the basement.
This is my first use of S-04, but from what I've read I agree. It's supposed to work through nicely.
And yes, I know the lactose can affect things.
I'm bloody tempted to bottle & carb on the low side & say the heck with it.
After all, I made beer.
But part of my brain says that I missed something.
