9 lbs LME Light 2 Lbs belgian candy sugar
I only added 3 lbs at boil(60) the rest of the sugars and extract at 15
2oz hallertau at 60
1oz saaz at 5
WLP-530 (1 vial)
So I'm thinking I'll let it rest for a few weeks ? or should I add another vial.
Whats the process of adding more yeast ? do I shake it up or just pitch ?
I've made beefed up hefe's before with WLP-500 (around 6-7%abv) and those fermentations are vigorous and fast. I was thinking the 530 would be kind of the same maybe a little longer but I don't see it drying out to the range I want it unless I do something. I've read people adding sugar to the primary fermentor after the initial phase but is this going to get it down to the 1010 range or simply make the beer too sweet as the yeast seems to have crapped out.
