  • Got started with a beginner's starter kit while looking for another hobby. The obsession turned into a job and then a career and I spend my days working in the beer industry.

    I'd confirm they're that width at their widest point, including lids , first. Then cut out two

    of your fr...

    If you think the first starter has fermented out I'd cold crash the first starter, decant and
    step it up with the new packet of yeast. My 2 cents.

    Just to be sure its not a temperature issue, pour some into a glass and take a temp reading.

    ...but the bubbles didn't 'look normal'.... they were large and the film of the bubbles look
    more like an opaque skin. This sounds similar to fermentations I've had that included a lot of

    Calibrate your thermometer. You could be mashing at a lower temperature than you think. I would
    not add more crystal malt and mash higher; do one at a time to help rule out any issues.

    I appreciate the advice! I'm a very technical learner; what purpose will each malt serve me?
