I brewed a 3.5 gallon SNPA clone Sunday. I usually use the Priceless calculator to determine strike water volume. For this recipe it called for 5.35 gallons. Boil off is set at 1 gal/hr. I had about 1/4 gallon left which is what the calculator said I should have and is normal for my brews. My preboil OG was 1.042 which is about normal for me. The problem was the post boil gravity which ended up at 1.062 (supposed to be 1.053). Not sure what caused the increase. I boiled for 60 min/ mashed for 60 min. When I checked the strike water volume on BF it shows 5.04 gallons. If anything my OG should have been lower, not higher. By the time I chilled my wort, and the sample was chilled enough to check it was too late for me to add any additional water. Total grain bill was right under 7 lbs. Any ideas what could have caused the increase? Also what can I expect from the finished product? I used 1056 slurry that took 8 hrs to take off and is currently chugging away.
