OMG! Is my beer ruined?!?!?!
So I brewed Orfy's Mild Mannered Ale and my FG is higher than I'm used to @ 1.015 temp corrected. Here's the specs...
6 lbs Pale Malt, Maris Otter (3.0 SRM)
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM)
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 90L (90.0 SRM)
4.0 oz Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM)
Mashed at 158dF for 60 min
used rehydrated SafAle S-04 per directions on package
fermented at 67df for 14 days
racked to keg and took FG sample @ 1.015 for an apparent attenuation of 58%
Now, I have been getting apparent attenuation of 68% to as high as 74% with S-04, but that's with a mash temp of 152df to 154dF. I've never mashed at 158dF and not sure if 1.015 from 1.037 is what I should expect or if it should have gone lower.
It taste fine and landed at 3% ABV so I'm not too concerned, but wanted some more information on mash affecting attenuation.
