I should have known this would happen...

Tried to do a two week turnaround on this for a work party. Came in a gallon short somehow, pushing the ABV close to 6%. Only let it sit in primary for 10 days before kegging. Hello acetaldehyde. Oh well, live and learn.

I decided at the last minute to brew this on Sunday (SWMBO wasn't too happy that I was brewing until 8 last night ) and everything went really well.

My only concern is that I ended up with at 1.050 instead of the projected 1.039 (pre-boil gravity was 1.046)...is this going to be a problem?

I followed the 5 gallon recipe exactly and usually get around 70-75% efficiency so I am not sure how my numbers were so high...

You should be fine. Allow an extra 10-14 days of fermenting time in the primary. It will just be a bit bigger beer, but allowing it to ferment out thoroughly will still yield a nice clean tasting product.

Thanks, I was planning on leaving it in primary for at least 2 weeks anyway so that shouldn't be a problem.

A little higher alcohol content is never a problem with me

I brewed up another batch two weeks ago, the stuff flies out of the kegs. Even got a neighbor who is going to buy me some more kegs so I can brew a batch for him to have at his daughters wedding
