Hi all new to this homebrew , I've done 2 batches , I messed up tr 1st as I had only a 13litre kettle so I used half the ingredients , worked out ok but the abv was low , 4.2% was an American pale ale from HBC , 2nd batch , HBC DIPA , went to plan but again low abv 6.2% , I had no temp control only a brewbelt,  and a hand held Infra red thermostat , I kept it roughly at 20 to 23 deg for 2 weeks,  any major reason this would happen thanks Kieran

your definition of low abv is not what I would say is. not sure from your post what you mean. what abv were you expecting from the recipe you used.
