Hi. I’ve been brewing extracts for a number of years. Generally speaking, I know what I’m doing. So that puts me in the territory of being over confident, and thus, I made a mistake. I brewed a partial mash wheat/porter recipe, and everything went perfect until I measured the SG and found I was about 20 points under target (target was 1.062, and I was at 1.043). I figured out that I had only added 3lbs of Bavarian Wheat LME instead of the require 6lbs. The wort still tasted ok, though, and I figured it would just end up being a session type beer.
I just transferred it to secondary, and again, it still tastes ok, but a bit heavy on the dark porter side. I was wondering about adding some cane sugar to the secondary to both increase the gravity a little bit, but also take the edge off the dark bitterness. I actually don’t mind it, but I know there aren’t many others that would like it that way. Thoughts on what I could do at this point? Thanks.
