Perfect... I think. Is it bad that I had to top it off although I calculated 5.5g at 1.065?

Also can I dry hop this in secondary?

Thanks for the recipe!
Ideally you don't want to top up with a whole gallon if you don't have to. That being said, you can still make great beer. I doubt you will notice. Yes, you can dry hop in primary.

that happened to me too. I ended up with less wort because of a nice, vigorous 90 minute boil and my OG was 1.075 or so. I added about a half gallon of water. I dry hopped in primary as an experiment but will definitely rack to secondary next time to let it clear and settle more. Otherwise it came out great! Ended up spot on at 1.012. tasty!!

What about adding pectin enzyme? I use it in mead and works great, but I don't recall seeing anything about adding to beer. Has anybody tried?

I see there are a couple of extract versions floating around. I'm new to beersmith, just downloaded the trial, can't seem to get it to convert correctly. I'll keep tinkering with it but in the meantime, is there an extract version with a good track record? Thanks.

We don't just boil for the hops. A lot of caramel flavors develop during a boil. It also gets rid of DMS. Plus a 90 min boil allows you to sparge with more water, getting more sugars out of your grain.
