First time poster.
Just put my new brewing system together. Well, almost together. Still have some work to do but I couldn’t wait to get brewing so I jumped the gun a little. Anyways I made a Light American Lager for the guy that welded my kegs for me. didn’t calculate what was going to be left and grain absorption and such. In short instead of 5 gals I ended up with 3.75 gals.
My OG reading should have been 1040 and it was 1060. As stated this is a LIGHT Lager. Guy drinks Bud Light. I’m thinking even though it may turn out to be tasty he won’t care for it with his Bud Light taste buds.
Would you dilute? If so when?
I’m thinking when I wrack it to the carboy I should add a gal of distilled water.
