UPDATE!

Just racked this into another fv for a day clearing with alekleer before priming and bottling. Reading is now 1.004! That's going to be nearly 10%... Like others have said it doesn't taste too strong and is pleasantly hoppy so looking forward to seeing how it clears and conditions....

I dropped by my local home brew shop today and sure enough they stock this kit. I think it might be my next "Special Brew" after I do the Hammer of Thor lager.

So I've just put this on today and quite excited my starting gravity is 1060

i have however brewed it far longer as didnt want it too high and would prefer the extra beer!



Lets hope I've done the right thing

will be putting the hops in early too

Just started my FV with this today, and took a few pics with no particular plan.

Outside of the bag of wort I got a massive sachet of yeast and these sachets of hops (no idea what to do with them yet)


I heated the bag of wort up while sanitising my equipment


and the SG came out roughly 1060 - 1061 when diluted to 23 litres, which is exactly what it says it should be on the package (no idea how other people were getting 1070+?)

I haven't actually tested my hydrometer in water yet, I'll give that a go when I get home. In terms of stirring, I positively molested the wort to get it oxidated, then continued to stir as the extra water was added. I did all the necessary washing out the remaining wort in the bag etc as well. The only thing I can think of is that by 23 litres when I tested the temperature had fallen to be about 17c (I let it sit for a few hours afterwards before pitching), but I would assume that's closer to most hydrometer calibrations than higher temps.
