Recipe:

7lbs DME (1.75lbs full 60 boil, 5.25 added at flame out)

2 lbs steeping grains (I calculated 35% efficiency) 30 minutes at 155 degrees.

lots of hops (1 oz Magnum for 60, and staggered Citra until flame out)

s-05 dry yeast

Partial boil at 3 gallons ended up with a little more than 2.5 gallons.

Added 2.5 gallon (+/-) water to make 5 gallons....mixed well and took reading = 1.054! Should have been 1.065.

Mixed again and took another reading - exactly the same = 1.054.

what happened? Did I totally miscalculate the steeping grains?

On a positive note it started chugging away less than 10 hours later and smells great!
