Boy Howdy...Generic DME defies gravity
Brewed a SGPA last night: 6lb, Briess Pilsen Lt DME, 1.1lb Munton xLt DME, 1lb Candi Clear, 26 IBU, 8%ABV, WY570 2qt starter, Starter and wort pitched at 60F
anticipated OG 1.071
measured OG 1.080 - Boy Howdy!!
Created recipe with BeerTools software. No choice for Briess extract so picked generic Lt DME (~44GU). Seems like the Briess came in ~.006/lb higher than the generic Lt DME. Now If everyting else stays the same it's going to be a 9% ABV beer.
The Primary was perking along this morning with temp up to 66F. My first HG beer and now its even higher. Anything I need to look for in ferment? (65F upto 75F 1st wk, hold at 75F 3wks) Will there be enough yeast to chew it down?
