So I brewed this up today. Missed the SG by .1. Was supposed to be 1.06 and i got a corrected 1.05. I definitely had too much water. Beersmith configured ~2 gallons for the mash and 5.5 gallons for the sparge. I don't know why i didn't do the math and think, hey I only have a 7.5galon pot. Due to this I couldn't get too strong of a boil going or else it would spill out everywhere. I only ended up with about 5.5 gallons of wort after filtering everything (hops, orange, coriander) out. The sample tasted a little weak, but like beer so we'll see how it goes. Anyone recommend me doing anything else to possibly bump the gravity??

Ha! I think i'll ride it out. It shouldn't bee too bad, just not as strong. I just hope it doesn't taste watered down. Anything I can add to it to help or should I just let it roll and see what happens?

At this point it pretty much is what it is. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

I am brewing this AGAIN, but I am using 1.5lbs of 40L instead of the 10L.

I am also mashing at 2qt/lb doing a mash efficiency experiment. Also making a video of the brew.

Cool. What do you think about mashing a bit higher, say 155, to take advantage of that 40L? Make it a little maltier?

The recipe already calls for the 155F mash... so that is what I intend to do.
