Such is Jeff’s new favorite quote. We’re debating legally changing his name to Jeff “Money” Heck because of how amazing his attenuation planning skills are. You see, Jeff has developed an uncanny ability to call the original gravity, final gravity ? even a fluctuating reading mid-fermentation ? on the NOSE. The only stipulation he has is that he calls it after reading it. So say we’re targeting a 1.058. A 1.060 would make any exacting brewmaster a little disappointed.
But NO! Jeff has SECRETELY CHANGED THE TARGET READING without telling us! And now he claims we were shooting for 1.060 ALL ALONG! I just have to think we’ve got a leg up on other brewers, since we can do no wrong with this new system.
But seriously, our attenuation has been really good lately. Try 83%. That’s pretty much 100% in our book.
