    American IPA Dogfish Head 60 Minute Clone (AG) & Extract

    I just racked this recipe (AG) to secondary. The OG was 1.057 and FG was 1.012. I used dry American ale yeast but made a starter and it took off and fermented like there was no tomorrow. I took a taste pre-dry hopping and it is already tasting great. Congrats to the original poster for the...

    Really low OG / All-grain

    I'm desperately seeking resolution to what went wrong with my first all-grain brew. Once I'd made added it to the fermenter and pre-yeast addition, I took an OG reading and it came out 1.024. It should have been up near 1.070 from the recipe. Some points to help get to the bottom of my...
