well i can't resist, my delima here. I made a batch and the O.G. was 1.038 when she went into to the primary. When i racked to the secondary I did Kai's above mentioned technique. After two weeks in primary I am still sitting @ 1.020. Albiet , it is chilly in the basement, I moved the carbouy next to the furnace and water tank to warm up. I'm really unsure of what to do. Should I just go ahead and pitch another starter(don't really want too) or should I just warm her up alot for a while.
I am concerned that the gellatin really tied me up. When i racked i knew that it was 1.020 and i probably should not have racked until it was much lower(especially with the adding of gellatin right @ racking to secondary). Some guys say not to use gellatin until a later stage in the secondary.
So when I did another test today, I ran the sample under hot tap water for a while and it measured @ 1.016. As it stands, I have a starter in the fridge of the same everything in my secondary(yeast and DME). But I really don't want to go there. I think that I am leaning towards just letting it warm up for a while and then bottling.
