Hey everyone. Let me preface this by saying my wife and I just had a baby girl. She is healthy and happy and the sweetest thing ever. She also keeps me up at night. Now to the beer. Right before going to the hospital, I ordered some stuff to create my first extract recipe. I've made one kit before, which got ruined by fusel alcohols, so I was excited. So while Leia was not letting me sleep, I decided to make the recipe. I wanted a lower abv session ale, with between 10-15% caramel malt for some body. Because of sleep deprivation I screwed the pooch on the amounts, and added 1.5lbs to my 5 gallon batch. This is what I ended up with: Original Gravity: 1.049 Final Gravity: 1.012 ABV (standard): 4.86% IBU (tinseth): 32.58 SRM (morey): 7.24 FERMENTABLES: 1 lb - Dry Malt Extract - Light (15.4%) 4 lb - Dry Malt Extract - Light - (late addition) (61.5%) STEEPING GRAINS: 1.5 lb - American - Caramel / Crystal 20L (23.1%) HOPS: 10 g - Mosaic, Type: Pellet, AA: 12.7, Use: Boil for 60 min, IBU: 23.16 3 g - Citra, Type: Pellet, AA: 13.5, Use: Boil for 10 min, IBU: 2.68 3 g - Galaxy, Type: Pellet, AA: 15.7, Use: Boil for 10 min, IBU: 3.11 3 g - Mosaic, Type: Pellet, AA: 12.7, Use: Boil for 10 min, IBU: 2.52 1 g - Citra, Type: Pellet, AA: 13.5, Use: Whirlpool, IBU: 0.36 1 g - Galaxy, Type: Pellet, AA: 15.7, Use: Whirlpool, IBU: 0.41 1 g - Mosaic, Type: Pellet, AA: 12.7, Use: Whirlpool, IBU: 0.34 YEAST: LalBrew - LALBREW® BRY-97 WEST COAST ALE YEAST I didn't realize my mistake until a few days later, and now I'm thinking my beer will be a dessert beer. What do you think should be the way to fix this? 1) Accept defeat and learn the lesson while drinking my alcoholic syrup. 2) Make another wort with only fermentable sugars, and replace a portion of the current batch to lower the sweetness and increase the abv. 3) Up the carbonation in the bottles and make beer soda. Any help is appreciated!
