So i popped open my Ale pail which had my nut brown in it, 9 days after brewing and to my surprise there's still a good 3/4 inch of krausen on top.
so at first i'm thinking it's a stuck fermentation since i only noticed the bubbler really going for about 3 days. i pushed the krausen out of the way and got a reading of 1.016 down from 1.050. that seems stuck to me. the batch honestly smelled a bit weird, strong alcohols with a side of funk. it tasted alright though.
now i did the possibly dumb thing and gently stirred the krausen back into the batch to try and get the yeast going again. was this ok to do? i also moved the batch from my basement (67 - 70) to my basement office (70 - 72) will this help it finish itself off?
