    The specialty grains won't add much complexity to your brew day so don't really worry about it.
    I'm sure there will be instructions but if not:1) Put the specialty grains in a grain bag and
    tie a knot...

    Never mind, checked it with a hydrometer and it's at 1.020. I was using my refractometer and
    wasn't aware that the alcohol in the beer messes with the reading.Nothing to see here...carry
    on.

    Well instead of getting 39.9 bittering units from your 60 minute addition from the Columbus you
    are going to get 47.5 from the Willamette. Really it could have been worse (It's a good think
    Willamette...

    I have. It took a 1.040 stall down to 1.002. It's a monster.Well I don't want it to go that
    low! I may try adding a bit of new wort and see if that helps...otherwise I'm out of ideas.

    Well, when all else fails...I'll see if I can get that. I wonder if the White Labs has an

    WLP500 optimum temp is 65-72. WLP550 optimum temp is 68-78. I'm at about 68 degrees. He was
    prob closer to 62 (in his basement). I don't think cooler temps will help.

    yeast up real goo...
