Gravity Estimates

Based on boiling {{CalculateBoilVolumeDisplay}} gallonsliters at {{CalculatePreBoilGravityDisplay}} for {{CalculateBoilTimeDisplay}} minutes, this will decrease your wort by {{CalculateBoilLoss}} gallonsliters, bringing your after boil OG to {{CalculateFinalGravityFromPreBoilGravity}}.

You were planning on an OG of {{RecipeSummary.Og}} so you are right on track. Nice job! You wanted an OG of {{RecipeSummary.Og}}. It looks like it will be over. You wanted an OG of {{RecipeSummary.Og}}. It looks like it will be under.

Notes:

Something I don't love about this. All the right notes; some chocolatey malt flavours, solid bitterness, some hop character coming through. However, it just doesn't pull together well like the original brew and has a slight green bite to it, maybe I don't like Nugget as a bittering hop? Plus the yeast profile was better with 1272 instead of the dry yeast. I think this batch of Simcoe was a bit old or badly stored too, just doesn't feel fresh to me. Drinkable, tastes quite nice, looks right, well carbed. Just not quite what I hoped for. Considering redoing the original extract and grains recipe rather than all grain?
