Hello guys, I brewed mead before but this was my first attempt at brewing beer. After making a lot of research I made my own recipe based on a few others, and here is the recipe; https://www.brewersfriend.com/homebrew/recipe/view/918381/buddha-bomber The thing is, when I measured the original gravity in the end, it came around to 1.030-1.032, which is way below what I anticipated by the recipe of 1.053. I am wondering what might be the problem, is it normal for a recipe to differ this much, can it be related to the wort not being mixed up properly or any other reasons I miscalculated? (Before you mention, I temperature corrected the hydrometer which at most increases OG by 0.002) Here are the steps I followed in case it helps; Steeped the grains in 10 Liters (2.64 Gallons) of water in 70-72 degrees C (158-161 F) for an hour. Rinsed the grain sack with 1 liter (33 oz) of 100 C (212 F) water. Brought the wort up to a boil and added 1.5 Liters (50 oz) of light liquid malt and started boiling for an hour. Added 14 grams (0.5 oz) of Target hops at the beginning of the boil and 28 grams (1 oz) of Brewer's Gold hops 45 minutes later. Skimmed the thin layer forming on top of the boil. After the boil, placed the pot in a cold bath to cool down. Poured the contents into a carboy and added water to top it up to 18 Liters (4.75 Gallons). Pitched the yeast at 28 C (82 F) (Don't worry, the yeast is fine). Proceed to take a measurement and be baffled by the reading of 1.030-1.032. I would be glad if you can help me figure this out.
