So tonight I racked over my Dubbel Dribbleto the secondary and while the FG was well in line at 1.012 (should have shot for 1.018m but oh well), the color looked a little light. Not only is this a style issue, it’s also an issue with the grain and Belgian Candi Sugar I used. It was supposed to be 275 SRM and should have brought the whole brew to a 17 to 20 range. Instead it looks like I am at the lower end of the 14 to 17 range.
It’s kind of crazy to me because Beer Smith gave me a pretty high reading based on the ingredients, but it didn’t turn out that way.
Any thoughts on this?
