    After a beer or two I came up with a possible solution, boil up some water add some dme, cool it and add to your fermentor? Could possibly balance it out? You're still fermenting, so worth a shot? Not sure, haven't tried it myself, what's everyone else's thoughts?

    That sounds like a a better plan to me. But I was thinking I small. 2l mash with some pale and some oats to improve mouthfeel in the process?

    I also read that research groen! It said it absorbs it in the trub or something. I didn't pay much attention coz I never planned on brewing such high ibus

    That sounds better than dme too, it's a real neat style and I hope you can save it

    Ok I'm questioning everything now! I'm completely lost!

    I let yesterday's sample chill and drop clear.....
    Not all that undrinkable, actually not bad at all. I'm not changing anything! Groenspookasem you are turning me into a hop head!

    So I got a second opinion and it's clear. I need to add DME. My og was 1040 instead of 1049. Fg is 1006. It needs body badly. I wanted to get to 1045 with the addition. I have 25l in the fermenter so beersmith says
    340g addition.
    Do you think its enough to help the body or should I go for 1049?

    Go for 1.049, unbalanced beers makes it difficult to enjoy. I had something similar with a amwheat a while back - on the very edge of being over the top

    1049 it is. Just boiled it and poured it! Now the wait begins again.

    And my blondes have run out!

    Bottling night.
    I decided to add my priming DME (not sugar so I can get a little more body from priming) to the fermenter not the bottles individually to save time. BUT forgot to take the sg before. So I have no idea how strong it is. But the sg after priming is 1014 so probably not to bad.

    Anyway I dont think its red, more deep amber
    Still not well balanced though. I'll call this one school fees and every time I taste it I'll know I need to brew better. The bitterness overpowers everything. I cant even tell you what flavors or aromas there are. I'll do a more detailed taste test after conditioning but at this point this one is not for the record books.
