For the 4th, I brewed 5 gallons if IPA with my dad. He brewed an extract batch last yer on July 5th and this was his first glimpse at AG. I spent too much time telling him what I was doing, and not enough paying attention to my notes and beersmith recipe print out. I freaked out as boil began, when my OG 1.060 wort was only 1.049, so I added DME per the gravity adjustment tool to get to the 1.060. I realized after we pitched and I checked my notes that my estimated pre-boil gravity was supposed to be, you guessed it, 1.049. Lesson learned: pay attention to the recipe and brew steps that you take the time to print out! It will be better next time!
