I brewed a Hefeweizen yesterday (seem to be backwards brewing lighter stuff as it gets colder vs heftier brews!) and I thought everything was going very well.
Hit my mash temp right on at 152. Was only slightly over on spare water volume , 2qts…Boiled down and hit 5 gal mark in fermenter.
My calculated OG was 1.052. My OG was 1.042.
I had to run out for some errands before taking my sample so the wort sat cooling for about an hour or more and I did not stir before just dipping the measureing cup in to pull a sample.
Question is, does any settling occur that would lower my OG reading or is wort gravity uniform throughout and it is what it is?
