It should not taste sweet with that fg. But sometimes beer will taste thin and/or underhopped, and that can give you a sensation of sweetness. If it tastes a little sweet, my thought is the bittering hops weren't quite enough. If you dig up the recipe and post it, I could tell you for sure.The Bone2 said:We put the 2 cups of Corn Sugar in for a 5 gallon batch of Anchor Steam Clone. I probably could dig up the recipe, but I know we used White Labs 810 Yeast. Anyway, it was my buddies idea to do it to boost the alcohol content. Our beginning gravity was 1.052 and the ending was 1.010. We did only a primary, for three weeks and it has been in the bottle for only 8 days. I know I cheated, but the beer seems a little "sweet" to me. So far, in my knowledge of beers, this is the best word I can use. Perhaps after I wait the proper amount of time in the bottle, the hops will come out more. Or maybe it is the placebo affect and I just imagined the sweeter flavor.
