Sorry to resurrect thread. I just did this kit and forgot to do sg before adding yeast so flagged it. Anyone know what the sg is with the kit plus 1.2 mg's lme and 23l total. Not 100% accurate but just the average sg will help me make a guess.
If you mean OG (Original Gravity) before fermenting, I have done this kit twice with the recommended 1.2kg Light Malt Extract, but only to 21 litres not 23 and the OG both times came out as 1.053Sorry to resurrect thread.

I've noticed some brews will make me extremely toxic lol some no bother at allI’ve been drinking my Pink Grapefruit IPA for around 4 weeks now. It’s a cracking pint but I’ve noticed something odd, which is that on the nights I drink it, I get terrible wind (yes, I know it’s beer, but this is worse than normal) and mild stomach cramps in the night and morning. It’s definitely the beer. So either there’s something in there that’s giving an allergic reaction, or could it be the StarSan? I used it as normal so I don’t see how, but it’s odd - I’ve never had a problem with any beer before (unless I’ve had more than 10 pints, of course).
Glad it turned out so well. I liked it so much that I've done it again and it's currently in the shed conditioning. Will be ready to try very soon and I'll post the results on here.I am pretty new to homebrewing and this was the 5th of my brews so far. I started this kit on the 31/01/21, I used light DME and the Kit Yeast US West coast M44. I added hops on the 11th of February and 3 days later bottled the brew with an FG of 1.004 giving an ABV of 5.25%. After 2 weeks of secondary fermentation and carbonation I moved the beer to my garage on the 27th of February. I had a couple of bottles last Saturday night. I was saving it until May, but there was no beer in the fridge. I honestly think that this is the nicest beer I have ever tasted. I was blown away, the carbonation was spot on, and the pint glass looked like something served in a very posh craft beer bar, beautiful clear and vibrant colour with a perfect head just like in the picture above from @GhostShip , I will definitely do this kit again. I have a juicy session IPA in an FV at the moment which I am also looking forward to. I am going to save the rest of this batch of Pink Grapefruit IPA and enjoy it in the middle of May over a few BBQ's. I can't wait, it is going to be very hard keeping my filthy mitts off it.
