I attempted this recipe again, after the cock up with water volumes in my first attempt.

Got the water spot on, with US gallons! got 5 US gallons into the FV. OG was 1.042.

However, after 2 weeks, it looks to be stuck on 1.018, which will give me another 3.2%ABV beer, not really what I wanted!

Could I possibly kickstart this with a starter?

No, it sounds about done. It's not a high abv beer but next time if you start with a recipe with more fermentables you can get a higher abv.

I'm going to make this, not sure what yeast would be best.
Considering US-04 or Notty.

Recommendations?

Either, as they are very similar. Keep it under 65 degrees, otherwise both strains get funny-ish tasting.

Ty Yooper!
I'll post back in a few weeks or so when I get a chance to make it.

I haven't had a chance to keg mine yet. When I took a sample it seemed like it will be a nice easy drinking brown ale. Will give a full update once I have it on tap.
