Fair point. I will reassess after the beer ferments. I do not have a water report, but I will look for one on my town's website.

comment Which is a better fermentation method for high gravity beers?
Yes, I was referring to warmer ambient temperatures, and you are correct, fusel alcohols occur when fermented warmer than recommended temperatures. However, which high gravity beers, the fermentation will be more active and thus produce more heat (as it is an exothermic reaction). Therefore, although your cabinet may do fine for a typical small beer, you may be surprised at the fusel alcohol content of this bigger beer.

comment I used too much malt. What should I do? Suggestions how to salvage?
@Tobias yes, the extract most definitely varies from brand to brand. In fact, you can have a sack of 2-row who's extract will vary the older it gets. Beer-smithing is a very, very rough science. Though, it can also be exact...

Ok you're right. Using my assumption that it's 40 points per pound per gallon, the addition is 24 points not 34 like I listed originally. Do you have any good reason I should go with the 44 points per pound per gallon figure instead of the 40 that I used?

Well, I saw a range given on Palmer's website - I used the lower end of the range. Admittedly I don't really use DME, so i don't have a lot of experience with it. Also, the OP stated he added 3 pounds extra not 2. I don't have a problem making the update to my post though, if you feel that is what's correct.
