I took a gravity reading about 5 days ago, still 1.020. I put a heat belt on the carboy and brought the temp up to 78 degrees and fermentation started once again. I will be taking another reading tomorrow and I hope to be able to bottle at that time as well. No matter how this turns out, I will not be using Wyeast 3724 ever again. Too finicky for a hobby that is supposed to be fun.

EDIT- 4/21 gravity down to 1.012 Still waiting for it to approach 1.004 or no movement in the reading.

EDIT- 4/29 gravity stabilized at 1.012. Bottled on 4/28. Primed to 2.0 vols of CO2. Hoping for the best.

**UPDATE 5/07** Put one in the fridge this morning and popped the top tonight. Flavor is great. A little under carbonated as of yet, but that is to be expected after only 1.5 weeks of bottle conditioning. I really appreciate all the input from those on this thread and I hope that this may encourage others not to give up on a batch that is all but spoiled.
