Make sure you mix the wort after you sparge, before you take a reading. If you're taking a refrac reading and just getting a sample from the top it is quite diluted.Yes I have but it didnt make lot of sense this time.
It was 1.046 pre boil, after sparge.
It was 1.060 post boil.
I have had this happen during a brew before was expecting 1.046 and got 1.016! Slight panic, then realized what had happened. Gave it a stir and it was fine.
