While I am building my AG set-up, I decided to throw together some extracts that were given to me. They were: 3.3lb LME Pilsen Light, 4lb Cooper's LME "lager", 1lb DME. I also steeped a few grains for flavour and colour (which turned out to be too much colour). They were roughly equal portions of Munich, Caramunich, and Chocolate Rye at 1.6lbs. I also added a .75lb of malto-dextrin. After my 1hr boil I brought 2.5gals of wort to 76° in about 25 minutes. My OG was 1.048, which adjusting for temp according to thermometer was 1.050.
Isn't that a little lean for the amount of sugars I should have in there? If so, what would cause this? I don't think I had any bubbles on the hydrometer.
(on a side note, the Simcoe/Cascade combo smells soooo goooood)
