I dont see how can you introduce more O2 by stirring wort/beer in close (airlock) carboy. There

I hope a couple of quick comments on this is ok for review since high gravity stall has been a

with great b...

haulers and ...

You said you didnt like 90% of your brews, what about 10% that you like . Do you see the
