A couple weeks ago I brewed an English IPA with an OG of 1.085 and pitched a 2.5ish liter starter that was periodically shaken. This is -slightly- under pitching but after 3 weeks in primary I feel like it should be doing better than 1.030. I have already roused the yeast once and raised the temp to 73F which got me 2 gravity points. It was a 10 gallon batch (I had 2 starters of equal size, for simplicity sake im talking about an individual fermenter.)
30 pounds golden promise
2 pounds C/C 40L
1 pound Munich
We mashed at 152-153 for 75 minutes and fly sparged for an hour.
Used Ek goldings, northdown, target, and brewers gold hops.
In an attempt to save it a brewmaster friend of mine suggested I pitch some well hydrated Nottingham, which I did, and is where I am at now. 64% attenuation and an angry homebrewer.
Has anyone else had something strange happen like this with 1968?
