So I'm not THAT new to home brewing (definitely new to the forum though) to know that this is messed up. I thought that I had originally messed up my brown ale when I got an OG reading of ~1.025 from what should have been 1.046-1.050. I went ahead an pitched the yeast though just figuring I'd have a slightly watered down tasting beer. But what's even weirder is that I'm now, a week later, getting a specific gravity reading of 1.030. I'm using a slightly modified "Elbro Nerkte" Recipe from The Complete Joy of Homebrewing.
I know the initial screw up with the OG was from topping off improperly, but what could the strange SG reading be due to? Also, the beer seems to still be fermenting when the recipe claims it should have finished in about 4-7 days? There's still a ton of yeast in suspension!
Thanks for any help,
