problem that is driving me nuts! Admittedly, I'm no expert, but I have brewed some good beers; however, all of a sudden I'm brewing crap. I guess I was sailing along fat and happy, and I guess lazy, not paying much attention, then all of a sudden I've brewed two batches of stuff that only I will drink--low alcohol. It's obvious that my fermentations aren't finishing.
OK, I spotted what I suspect is the problem--incomplete fermentation, so I look at my process. I decided I need to aerate better.
Here's the emergency--I made a yeast starter yesterday and plan to brew this afternoon AND I NEED ADVICE! I am making a nut brown and I got a liquid London Ale yeast. Yesterday I let it warm to room temp. I boiled 2- 1/2 cups DME and simmered for 10 minutes. Cooled to room temp and added the yeast. I put it all in a flask with 1/4 tsp energizer and put it on a stir plate in a warm spot--"warm" being about 70 F. Last night when I went to bed it was bubbling at about 6/minute. This morning--nothing. No bubbling. What happened?? Anything I can do. If I don't figure this out, I'm not going to brew today.
Any help would be much appreciated.
