Yup. OG 1.062... kegged reading 1.030. And since I really didn't want a much higher ABV. 4.5 would be ideal. And being at 4.2...

I'm not refrigerating for a week, so I'm expecting a some mild fermentation. We'll see what happens on Friday. I'll take another reading then.

Now I've never tried doing this before, but I'll know in a few days LOL

I have had a milk stout finish at 1.030 and it was good. But that was because i boiled off too much and finished with half the wort i was supposed to without adjusting lactose. Hopefully it turns out good for you.

Boiled off too much? That's a sad story! But as long as it worked out, I guess that's what matters.

I took a reading from the keg last night. 1.026... I'm shooting for 1.024, so I'll probably stick it in the fridge this evening.

Looks like it's working out. Tasted fine too. Just a little too hoppy for a wheat, but I was curious. Now I know LOL
