this is my first post!
home brewing was never a big thing in germany but as soon as i moved to NZ i was introduced to home brewing by my friends.
i made a few brews from kits during the last months and wanted to start experimenting a bit more. i tried honey, i tried adding hops and now i tried: 2 cans coopers stout, 500g DME, 2 sachets yeast (found this on the internet and thought i'd give it a go...).
i topped up to 27 liters and my OG was 1.04. after six days the fermentation stopped completely and i read 1.016 on the hydrometer. that was four days ago and it's still at 1.016.
any suggestions? how could i get the fermentation going again? i guess i would risk bottle rockets when bottling now?
