Is the FG wrong in this recipe?
« on: March 05, 2015, 01:36:28 pm »
I know FG's in recipes are not to be relied on, but this has an OG of 1.052 and an FG 1.022? I'm thinking this should be 1.012?

style guideline speaking- baltic porter would be more in the FG range of 1.022. a brown or robust porter is more towards your 1.012.

all depends on what you want.

EDIT- looking at the recipe, I'd be shocked if that recipe would even come close to 1.022. I would expect closer to the 1.012 as you mentioned.
