Couple of questions about this recipe. Relatively new, this is my 3rd batch. I brewed it a couple weeks ago and couldn't get my OG reading anywhere close to the 1.043. It was a partial boil and I added water until I finally managed to get the OG to 1.052. Any idea why I was so high? And what should I expect my FG to be with such a high OG? My 6 gallon carboy was almost completely full, had to use the blow off tube for the first time. So I also won't be able to use a secondary since my secondary is a 5 gallon carboy. How long do you think I should leave it in the primary if I bottle it after primary?

As a side note, when I use beercalculus and put in this recipe, it gives me an OG over 1.052 also.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Just brewed this tonight. My OG was also VERY high. I did 5.5 gal and it came out to 1.078. The color is also pretty dark. I think that late DME addition didn't dissolve all the way. Anyways, it smells amazing and will probably be a high alcohol beer. I am just going to leave in primary for the full 21 days.

1.078 is way off for that amount of extract.

What temp was your wort when you took your reading?

Brewpal says you should be at 1.052 post-boil.

If i did my batch identical to the one listed, what might be some factors why my OG was sooo high?

Can anyone offer some tasting notes on this brew? I've been reading some good things about combining Willamette with Cascade, and I'm curious what the baseline on all Willamette looks like.

(I'm quite new at brewing, with 2 batches under my belt).

Just finished my starter for this beer. I'm brewing tomorrow after noon and I'm doing 6 lbs LME and .5 lb DME with white labs American ale. I'll post results when it's ready.
