Gday All, my current brew I've just bottled is the 'Cascarillo' Amber ale from the coopers site.A very basic brew with 2 cans of T.C Amber extract and 3 different stage hop additions.Now here's where I'm stumped!when I checked the Og it was 1035 way too low I would think! According to the recipe fg should be 1006-1010 Abv 4.7. But my fg was down to 1004???? The only thing I can think of is that I did a 60min boil in 5ltrs of water with 500g of extract instead of 30 min as per recipe and somehow that lowered the gravity, which is arse about to What I've read more evaporation = higher G! Is this right?and can someone shed some light on this for me.cheers Dave

What size batch did you do? 1.004 is fairly low but it could still be very nice.

I just threw the numbers into beersmith and 23L with 3kg of liquid malt will be 1.035, so your right with what you got. So your looking at 4%, the recipe probably should of had an extra 500g of dry malt, or something like that, even some dextrose or sugar. Or another tin would of got you too 5.5% ish.

Hey Gash, got a quick question, was thinking about putting 2 All INN citra wort kits in the fermentersaurus, 30L, Then after ferment, adding the 5L cooled boiled water with priming Dex to each keg and filling, What do you think?
