Hey guys! Thanks for all of your knowledge on the subject, I love this forum!!
I brewed up my first batch 13 days ago, an Irish red ale extract kit which came out with an OG of about 1.045. I pitched a vial of WLP004 @ 75 degrees( I know, too warm. Took 2 days to bring the temp below 70), and got airlock activity in about 10 hours. The airlock was active for about 80 hours after that, then stopped. Today, at day 13, my gravity is reading 1.014-5, which is a bit higher than expected, but I know I under-pitched. It has been steady for 72 hours now. My concern is all of the stuff on top. Not sure if its just yeast rafts or bacteria, since this is my first brew. Thanks for all of your advice in advance!! I plan on drinking it either way!!!
