Even though this beer didn’t turn out well, it’s a recipe that I created and have successfully brewed before (with the type of dry hops being the only change).

  2. Just going by the numbers, I would think only getting 68% efficiency as well as ending at FG 1.019 may be a place to start with fixing this beer. Well, I guess that’s 2 places to start…

  3. I had actually only posted this for the recipe. I hadn’t taken a FG on it so I’m not sure where that number came from. It had a nice quick fermentation so with a dry yeast (Nottingham) so I hadn’t worried about that part. I’ll be more careful on my next brew though and record everything.
