I just finished brewing an "Imperial" Irish Red Ale (the first recipe I created) and I seem to have some OG issues. According to Hopville my OG should be 1.072, but my actual OG (adjusted for temp) was 1.096. How can this be? Also, while currently the recipe says it will turn out Light to Medium Brown, I swear it said copper/red yesturday. Maybe the program has issues? Any help is greatly appreciated. Here's the recipe: http://hopville.com/recipe/1677955
I'm not familar with this program, but difference in OG could be due to volume of water and your rate of evaporation. I use beersmith.
