Planning to brew this beer this weekend as a partial mash with 6 lb total grain and 4.5 lb DME. I had a nice starter going with harvested Bells yeast, but came home to find my cats had knocked it over and I lost most of it. I'm going to still try to keep that Bells yeast growing for a possible future batch, but now I'm going to use WY1272 for the brew this weekend.

Be careful with 1272. I would use a blow off tube straightaway if you don't already. In my experience it ferments violently.

Thanks for the advice. I typically do use a blow-off for 5+ gallons. The only time I don't is when I'm only making my 3 gallon batches. Nice to know I should be watching this one closely though!!

Brewed this morning! Hoping my top off water wasn't mixed in good because I'm only getting an OG of 1.053 for 5.25 gallons. I did a partial mash on the stovetop with 3lb two-row, 2lb vienna, 8oz crystal 20, and 8oz carapils and then added 4.5lb of DME. Beersmith says I should have had 1.065 with 75% efficiency at 5.5 gallons, but my OG is telling me I got less than 50%. Pitched a nice 1.5L starter of 1272 at 66 degrees. Should still turn out to be a good beer regardless.

I haven't really brewed too many IPAs. Would a lot of hop debris throw off a gravity reading? I'm just trying to figure out what caused my OG to be off by so much.
