What should the estimated final gravity be for the Plump Wheel Amber all grain kit?
Mario DiFelice on Jan 14, 2022
BEST ANSWER: Hey Mario. The specs show an estimated OG range of 1.050 to 1.056 and an estimated ABV of 5.3% right?
Suppose you hit the estimated OG and your FG comes in around 1.015, your ABV will be 5.38
How long is the fermentation time for this beer? Should I rack to a secondary for clarification after the fermentation ends?
Demir Ozcakir on Feb 19, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Hi Damir. I fermented at 68. I have brewed this 10 times now. Took 6 days each time. I went straight to a secondary and crashed cooled immediately each time. That clears it up beautifully. If you don't have the equipped to crash it, a secondary at fermentation temp will work as well.
Does this kit come with specialty grains?
Zachary R Walpole on Oct 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The all grain kit included 6lbs. of 2-Row, 4lbs of Munich Malt, 1lb of Crystal 75L:, and 0.5lb of Victory Malt.

Great beer - wife loves it!
Just tasted this off the keg and it is the best red/amber ale I’ve done. I’ve done a few, since this is what I brew for the wife (she’s not into hoppy ipas like me)).
I did BIAB and hit expected OG and FG. 2 weeks in fermenter with Saale-05 dry yeast at 69 degrees and kegged.
It is smooth, slightly bready, malty, and a touch sweet. Bitterness is low, but lingers with the sweetness after a isp.
I’m brewing this again and again. Great kit!

Smooth and pleasing
I brewed 10 Gallons of this all-grain recipe. It's was kegged after 2 weeks of fermentation and has been carbonating for one week. At this point i have taste tested and am very pleased with the smooth taste and wonderful aroma! One more week of aging and it will clear up and i expect an exceptional beer. Good job on this kit!
