When I tested my American Pale Ale's original gravity I got a reading of 1052. From everything I have read this seems to high for an ale. Any tips on how get the correct original gravity?

I ran the numbers and according to beercalculus the range is 1.052-1.061 so you're alright.....

Yeah it's a great free site...and if you ever need a grain, hop or adjunct not listed, you can email him and he'll add them...and he wants to hear suggestions for improvement as well.
