Chiming in with this: I'm also having a slow ferment. I found out that my initial reading 3
days in was way off. I did use 1388, and the temp is about 70 degrees. I started out at 1.132,

Y'all are awful:pI made it as far as 4 years with mine, and shared it with my brewclub. They
universally loved it. I brewed the recipe again, and did a split 10 gallon batch, with half

I'm still in testing with Fermaid O. Three additions seems fine with a 1.100 BOMM. When the
gravity is higher, it starts to get dicey on fusel production. You can add more. It won't hurt
anything as l...

After reading this entire thread, plus your blog, I went for it. I used mostly honey from a
local bee farm, where they have Tupelo available. That was 12 pounds, and I ended up having to
add in anothe...

Notes:Yes, it's a lot of oats. They will affect both head retention and gravity. You'll

around 1.072 OG ...

The finished beer initially had a pretty big citrus zing, more than I would have liked. In
talking to other people, it was probably a combination of the yeast (others have said it tends

I'm using it in a very simple Agave Wheat, to try to add a little interesting kick to it. I'm
fermenting at 66 F to start, and I'll ramp that up to 68 F after a couple of days. Based on
reviews on Whi...

Another upvote for Wilserbrewer. Wonderful stuff. I made a 10 gallon Wee Heavy batch in it -
wetted grain weight was a little under 100 pounds, and the bag handled it like a champ.

It happens on multiple kegs that I've swapped, so I doubt it's an o-ring issue.Temperature
