I brewed this sunday afternoon and pitched my starter around 830 that night. My og was 1.051. A bit higher than anticipated but thats fine. Today i took a gravity reading of 1.014! Ive kept the temperature between 67-72. It only got up to 72 for about 3 hours before i got it down. I'm thinking about racking a gallon on to some strawberry puree for a week. Anyone tried this before?

So I bottled this beer today. Here are my final numbers:

OG 1.052
FG 1.011
ABV 5.5

I did a 1L starter of WLp060 American Ale. It was done fermenting in 7 days but I brought the temp down to 62 for two days until I bottled it. I was worried about the color but it's pretty spot on. Its has a simple and refreshing taste. I'll defiantly be brewing this again next May to have for a summer ale but maybe use a more pronounced hop like Amarillo.

Either the person measured their water volume wrong and/or the wort was not properly mixed with the top off water so the hydro sample is not accurate. X amount of extract will always give you X amount of sugars in X amount of water.

I use a secondary for almost all my beers, helps clear it up. Not everybody does.

Tell them to get the Fermentis line of dry yeast, they are some of the best around. Muntons website gives no details about their yeast. It is usually a throw in with some cheap kits.
