I'm following a recipe from a book for an IPA that calls for the following (simplified) steps:
- Boil water (3G/11L)
- Add Light DME (1lb/450g) & return to boil
- Add hops
- At 45 mins, add LME (6.6lb/3kg)
- Add hops, etc & boil another 15 mins
BC has the exact brands of extract, but BM does not, though that does not seem to make a noteworthy difference. I'm using the brands listed by the recipe (Briess).
The only thing I can see that's different from BM/BC and the recipe is that the calculators don't have any option for a late malt addition for the extract. Will the late addition cause a higher SG? Should I add more malt to kick it up? Or could there be something else at play?
