Hello!

I brewed a milk stout 2 days ago with an OG of 1.060. 2 days later and it's at 1.026. Is that typical? Seemed a bit steep which made me start doubting my original readings although I was pretty careful to take them at accurately and at ~20C.

Thanks!

Not unusual for the OG to drop vastly in the first 2 or 3 days, what yeast are you using some do chew through very quickly

Why did you only wait two days to take a gravity reading?
I don't know? I've seen the odd mention of taking semi-regular readings to check the gravity drop off in some recipes
