My first post, so I'll try keep it short. Hello to everyone out there with an interest in all things beer!
I have a problem with my first attempt to brew in about three years. Can you help?
I've successfully produced 5 gallons of wort from 6kgs of pale malt with an o.g of 1060. Did this yesterday.
I pitched my yeast starter this morning at 20 degrees (10g of dried yeast made up with 60g of dried malt extract under airlock in a milk bottle since Friday evening).
So far there's been very little action, so to speak! I'm sure my brewing technique and the yeast starter were both sound.
I was thinking of "dropping" the whole lot into another bin in order to try and get some air into it for the yeast to get going???
Your advice would be appreciated.
