    Missing OG by 20+ Points - Help!!

    I've brewed three or four batches of a Rye IPA that borders on being a double IPA and each time I've brewed it I've missed my OG by 20 points or more. This is the only beer I've ever had trouble with in terms of hitting my OG (my system's efficiency is generally in the range of 65-70%). It's...

    Can I rescue a really low OG ?

    I have just put my wort into the fermentation vessel, measured the og and found it is way off, 1032 rather than 1062 as i forgot to add some of my grain. (3kg golden promise) I have read that you can adjust the OG with DME, but as this is so far out, I wondered if it was worth pursuing this...

    OG too low, can add candysugar after 1 week?

    So I brewed a witbeer, and I didn't get to my target OG. Stupid enough, I wanted to finish, so I have boiled shorter than I was supposed to, without realizing that this would affect my OG :no:(leasson learned!) Planned ABV was 4.9%, now would be 4.1% according to BeerSmith (if the fermentations...

    Everything was going so well...

    So I brewed up an AHS APA today, partial mash, full boil. Everything went great, no problems, smooth all the way. I get the wort into my primary bucket and take the gravity reading and get 1.044 (adjusted). According to the AHS recipe and Beersmith I should have come out with a 1.051 OG. I...
