Hit an OG of 1.053 at 5.5 gallons. Added enough water to bring to 5.75 gallons, which, according to BREWGR, dropped the OG to 1.051 If these numbers are correct, with a current gravity (during secondary) of 1.007, this brings ABV to 5.7%. Looks like IBUs and ABV are beyond BJCP standards for a Cream Ale, but it tasted damned good, regardless. Guess we'll see in a few weeks.

Notes:

Nope....this batch went to hell in a hand basket. This first bottle is only marginally carbonated with ZERO foam/head.....unacceptable #1. Taste is strong.....TOO strong.....not smooth at all....unacceptable #2. Appearance is otherwise okay.....clear and clean.....but this was a disappointment. I'll give it another week or so before trying another bottle.
