Not a full keg. Maybe 4 gallons? Didn't take a gravity reading. Didn't taste it. I'm going to assume 78% attenuation, which would be 1.013 FG and a 5.9% ABV beer. Close enough for me. 5/24/2019 10:09:13 AM2541#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#commentshttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icohttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icoComment: http://www.sheppybrew.com/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=155#comment2540Killed the keg.

Turns out I must have messed up the calibration on the tilt. Tilt read 1.007, but I noticed that the un-calibrated FG was 1.000. I calibrated in water, and it looks like my beer finished right about at 1.001. Adding fruit raised the gravity to 1.004, which makes sense. Apparently this WLP590 is closer to 3711 than I thought. Love the flavor. Tastes like the 3711. Has enough malt flavor that I would not call it 1.000. Note ... I had almost a gallon left that I put into another vessel. Not sure what I'll do with that.5/18/2019 9:05:11 AM2539#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#commentshttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icohttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icoComment: http://www.sheppybrew.com/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=157#comment2538Mango Pale Ale to secondary on mango puree.
