I've just put the extract version of this in the fermenter: http://www.wagonbrewing.co.nz/panhead-port-road-clone?search=pilsner
The gravity is 1.037 which seems way low. Dammit I don't want no weak beer! But I don't understand why it is so low. I did a partial boil (13L once the extract was added), chilled, siphoned to the fermenter and then topped up to 23L per the recipe. Wishing now I stopped at 20L and took a reading. Also aerated it by shaking the fermenter so it is definitely not a mixing issue messing with the reading. There is maybe 1cm of fluid/hops gunk left in the kettle. What happened?
One thing that was not great was the stove I was using was underpowered so it was a weak boil.
