When I enter this recipe in Beer Alchemy I get an OG of 1.077. Any ideas why this would be 13 points higher than the OP's numbers. I know that there can be a variation in software but 13 points is a lot.

biggest culprit i can think of is batch size. this is a 5.5g to the fermenter. and i think edwort shoots for 70% eff...that would account for a couple points?

i really like beer alchemy. you have it on your phone? or mac?

I have it on my mac. I have it set for a 5.5gal batch and 75% efficiency. I thought i read in an earlier post that this recipe is based on 75% efficiency.

Are other people that usually get around 75% efficiency scaling down the recipe?

Default fast fermentation


I brewed this 1 week ago, followed the recipe to a T as much as possible, got an OG of 1.065, so thought was perfect, pitched safale -05 yeast after aerating, did not make a starter, and set in a room of 66/67 deg F, so only a couple degrees warmer than the recommended 62-65. Well, it looked great, smelled great, and the airlock was bubbling like crazy for the first 2 or 3 days, but has not really bubbled at all since. Is this normal ? Is it possible that most of the fermenetation was done in just 3 days ? This is my 3rd attempt at all grain.

It's normal. Just don't jump the gun because there's no airlock activity. Give it at least a couple weeks for the yeast to finish fermenting it and to clean up after themselves. You're fine.

Can't seem to find the yeast you used for this one Ed. Us05?
