I made a milk stout 9 days ago with Ringwood Ale yeast (Wyeast Labs #1187). Mr. Malty said that I should have used 7 packages of yeast for, I only used 2. The OG was supposed to be 1.062 but I came in high at 1.080. FG is supposed to be 1.018, and after 8 days in my fermentation chamber at a steady 70 degrees I am at 1.030. Now I know that I had a couple of days of lag time so I am not ready to panic just quite yet. Here are my questions:
I have dropped 50 points, but due to my accidental high OG should I realistically expect to get to my estimated FG of 1.018? If not, what is a realistic FG?
I can't get any more Ringwood Ale yeast until this Saturday. If I am truly stuck at 1.030 is it OK to wait that long before re-pitching more yeast?
I can get some dry yeast as early as tomorrow. If that is the best option, what type of yeast would be good to get?
