comment OG higher w/ full vs. partial boil?
@TobiasPatton I ended up topping off to bring the OG down to 1.062. Not sure if that was the best course of action...

@JoeFish I have not, but I'll give it a shot. I believe I have an old gallon jug of distilled water around here somewhere. I may pick up a refractometer since I can use it for the saltwater tank too.

Nope, but I'll do that on my next couple batches to see.

I did that as well. Topped off with 1/2g and measured 1.072.

Yes, I added 1/2g and it was 1.072.

Those are all valid reasons but those things should be equal (except for the 1st) if I'm doing a full vs. partial boil. I've never been this far off with a partial boil. Only with the 2 full boils. Seems odd to me that I'd have these problems on 2 out of 12 boils and both of those were full boil.

Pre-boil volume was a bit over 5 gallons, maybe 5.25.

Between 4.5 and 4.75 gallons. I measured 1.082 prior to top off.
