I got a couple questions about my latest batch of beer. I have made this porter five or six times before but this time things have been different. The only thing I have done different this time is that I made a starter. First, I followed my recipe the same as always but when I took my OG reading it was 1.100, it is supposed to be 1.070 and that is still on the high end. Anybody know why the change? Next issue, I started my fermentation inside, (using a six gal. carboy with blow off) it took off just like it should but it started to get too warm so I moved it to the garage, it continued but then overnight the fermentation temp went down to 60 and the blow off stopped, so I brought it back in the house to bring the temp up a bit but that nice primary fermentation isn't starting again. Usually the vigorous primary fermentation lasts about three days with this beer. Again I ask, why the change? So now my changes, usually I just leave my beer in the primary for a month then I go to bottle. This time I need my primary so I am going to rack to a secondary but I was thinking I would just rack everything to the secondary instead of leaving the cold break in the bottom, mostly because of my lack fermentation activity. So please I am looking for some input on what's going on, what do you think?
