Just curious - was the 1.046 OG what your brewing software predicted, or what you actually got .......... or both!

I plugged your recipe in to Beersmith 2, as I think I will give it a try at some point - I drank my fair share of "Ex" when living in Montreal many years ago!

In the recipe, I added a few ounces of crystal 120 just to darken it a tad, (looking at the side by side pic that you posted.

But even then, my Beersmith only predicted 1.037 OG

Not sure which is right, and why the difference, but I almost thought 1.037 might be closer to what I would expect, as the grain bill is quite small - although you do have sugar in the recipe too. (I figured I might use dark brown rather than light. Often throw a can of Lyle's golden syrup in my UK ales. - used to love that stuff on toast as a kid growing up in England!)


PS - I thought afterwards -maybe the difference in OG happens because differences that you and I have in assumptions of mash and brewhouse efficiency with our respective systems in Beersmith - or whatever software you use if you use software!
Brian just don't add the sugar to the recipe I took it out and went with this. The gravity in BS is probably due to equipment difference.

Here's what worked better

I used to live in Ontario as well and now live in South Scatch but back in the day I drank my share of X but my brother always bought Labatt's 50. That's another one that seems to have disappeared. How would your recipe compare to it because the two beers where similar?
