1.045 is right around where it should be. Any idea what your FG was?

3% with an OG of 1.045 would make your FG 1.022 which would make it a really sweet beer.

It is one of the sweeter beers Ive made, I love the taste, the fg was 1.09 I believe. I split the batches into two seperate fermentors, One finished earlier than the other.

I bottled one batch, kegged the other, but every time I pour from keg it was very cloudy, I racked from keg to a clearing vessel last night it was clear ontop, but lots of yeast in the bottom. I might add some orangepeel and coriander to it tonight and re-keg in a day or 2.

DAMN, Sam! I bet it was!



Edit: I think you forgot a zero. Most strong brews don't start as high as 1.090; besides, 1.009 for an FG is completely normal for this beer. I know; it's a typo -it was kinda funny that you said it was sweet. The sweetness will diminish with some cellaring. Give it a month and try it again if you can stand to wait.

1.009 is plenty dry and would put your ABV at 4.7, which is right on for the style.

I used US-05 and it finished at 1.012, but I don't think it's sweet at all. Although I started a bit high at 1.056.

I'm going to try this one this weekend with cornmeal and long grain rice, S05. I'm going to cereal it and then mash with 2 row. Let you know in a few weeks. I'm hoping to get this on tap prior to xmas.

Just brewed a 10 gallon BIAB batch of this today, unfortunately I had some problems along the way. First while grinding the grain, the mill decides to flip and dump about a cup of grain on the floor. Second problem, a 15 gallon kettle is not big enough for a 10 gallon batch. And finally; my mash temps were all over the place, from as low as 142 to high as 168. My pre-boil and post-boil OG were the same, 1.045. I'm hoping that there will be no effect, but it looks like from other threads this beer maybe getting dumped. I'll just have to wait and see how it comes out.

Reason: added title

I did 1 5 gallon batch with grits and 1 5 gallon batch with corn maze. Had 3 people try it and results were:
1 for the grits
2 for the corn maze

Opened my first bottle today after two weeks in primary and a week in the bottle. Carbed up nicely and it's darned tasty. Got a little raw corn flavor, but I expect that to fade a bit with some more bottle conditioning.

nice pic drksky . made me want a beer . That corn taste will fade in about 3 more weeks . It never goes away but blends in nicely . I think in the winter it would be better to use less corn as sitting around drinking is just not the same as drinking on a hot summer day on the patio or after mowing the lawn . You will notice the corn taste more when your not hot & thirsty .
glad you are enjoying your beer

I think I got coffee up my nose!

I seriously think it will be a fine beer as long as you watch your fermentation temps and you pitched a good starter for that 10 gallons, but not true to recipe for sure.
10 gal BIAB is a pretty big batch sorry to hear about the troubled brew day.

If the Pre-boil gravity and OG were the same, I'm gonna say you had trouble with the boil(?); if so, this sucker is going to be a DMS bomb. Cream of Creamed Corn!

EDIT; I just re-read and see the comment about kettle size. I'm guessing you were not able to boil aggressively. Wait it out but, I think you'll find you have too much creamed corn/cooked veg aroma in the finished product. If you keg you may be able to scrub it (DMS) out but you'll have to wait it out and see what it winds up like then decide if you want to go through the hassle.
