    Thanks for the reply.It's actually around 17/18*c inside my house but I thought that was too
    cold, isn't it? Doesn't it depend on the yeast type?So technically:Primary fermentation about
    18*c for a we...

    T I think ill invest in "The joys of home brewing"Better yet, invest in some sort of way to
    cool your fermentation during the first crucial few days. Most ale yeast give the best result

    Once it gets down to 1.020, simply pitching another packet of yeast won't do any good.First,
    leave it be for another 7-10 days. If it's still 1.020, warm to 70-72*F and use a sanitized

    seen an activ...

    I'm even working up a recipe to serve at my wedding. That'll be a difficult task; alot of
    people there don't like beer. So any suggestions are more than welcome on what I should make.
    I'm leaning tow...

    OP-- what were your pitch and ferment temps?The flavors you get from Nottingham are very
    temperature dependent. Upper 50's to start gives a very clean ferment. It starts throwing
