What is a good S.G.

Postby BrentD » Thu Jan 04, 2001 11:19 am

I am brewing my first pale ale and I have an initial S.G. of 1.046. Is this adequate or should I use less water next time for a higher S.G.?

Classic English Pale Ale

I checked the Recipe Calculator at this site, and it says that your O.G. should fall within the range of 1.044 to 1.056 for a Classic English Pale Ale.
If you want your beer to have more body (higher gravity), boost your malt instead of using less water. You wouldn't want to brew less beer, right?
