So, I took out the ale, brewed on the 17th or so.
For reminders, it was supposed to be 1.061/1.015

High volume of LME, very few steeping grains. I added Yeast nutrient and aerated with an aquarium pump for about 40 minutes. I fermented at 64 degrees from the 17th through the 3rd and then crashed the yeast from the 4th through the 6th. It finished at 1.023, which was a bit high (attenuation of 49%ish). Thoughts? It's not as if it finished obscenely high, so it might have come down to 1.020 if I'd left it in a bit longer or fermented a bit hotter, but I'm not sure. I tend to miss high a lot and now I'm looking for ways I can bring the final gravities down, generally.

Which brand of LME? I noticed distinctly higher FGs with some brands than others when I was doing extract.

It was the Bavarian Pilsener from MoreBeer, so probably Briess.
