    I had an IPA in the fermenter I thought I would try yeast energizer on. fermentation stopped at
    1.016 Roused with spoon 1.014~2.5tsp yeast energizer in boiled water yielded 1.010Might be on

    Still working on this. The scottish ale exhibited symptoms at 2 months in the bottle. This is a
    significant increase in shelf life, but still unacceptable. I never measured the bottled co2
    volumes but...

    There is some speculation these prefer either no cover or low top pressure (loose cover on
    bucket) to preform best but that may be more of an o2 issue than anything. I am experimenting
    on the 36 hour ...

    just to share/contribute to the discussion a little..Day 5: Airlock activity was basically
    stopped. Sample read 1.013 for ~ 71% AA. Hydromemeter sample was clear as a bell. Swirled yeast

    Test number 2 with the scottish ale went well. It's done fermenting as of today. I took daily
    gravities on this one. Here's how the fermentation went.Day 1: Pitch, swirl fermenter to break
    up yeast, t...

    Opened a bottle today. No cidery or tart off flavors! I tested the gravity of the bottle 1.010.
    There seems to be a slight increase in carbonation (as the 1.002 point drop in gravity would
    suggest). T...

    How did the test go?I'll open a bottle later today and take a gravity and check carbonation
    then compare it to a sample from the keg.

    I spoke with a brewer at Wyeast about the issues I am having. What we discussed: [*]1968 Does
    indeed have a high o2 requirement. [*]Do a forced ferment test with pitched wort (from the
    fermenter). A g...

    I have also had similar issues with 1968 yeast and bottling. I love the flavors of it and how
    it drops clear in a few days but I have the same issues as many other have when bottling it.
    Here are some...

    I replied a minute ago, but it seemed to have been lost.....anyway, here goes again:I brewed a
    batch of a Moose Drool clone in 2012, with 1968. It was my only time using that yeast. I have
    been brewin...
