This is my first recipe post! Huzzah!
I just transferred my Kinda Pliny Clone
to the secondary, and it's really pretty amazing. It tastes wonderful, the fermentation happened super quickly thanks to a 1/2 gallon starter, and the color should be great when it clears up.
Other than the entirely hacked dry hopping technique (is this going to cause problems? It's not too late to change it now), I have one concern about the gravity. We went from an OG of 1.079 to a SG of 1.014 today. That puts it at about 8.8%, but given the recipe I cannot figure out how we got it that high in alcohol. It does taste like it's in that range, and we measured at the proper temps, etc., but is this even possible? Could the OG be off slightly?
Anyway, I'm proud! Take a look below:
