That is most likely the problem. Take a reading with a hydrometer. I am willing to bet it will
be much lower.Yep, that was it, 1.0005. Thanks guys, I now have a much better understanding of

It's good. Alcohol is less dense than water, so it makes sense. FG is actually 1.001 when the
temp was normalisedhttps://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/4820019/CameraZOOM-20130909173554689.jpg

Update. I took a hydrometer reading. 1.000!!!!!Why is there such a discrepency between
hydrometer and refractometer?

Extract or All Grain batches?Mash temp?refractometer or hydrometer readings?the 3724 needs
heat, like 90+ and it will finish like a snail.............maybe 4-5 weeks and finish below
1.010 easily but ...

All grain recipe ( used Belgian yeast, not French.Mash was done at 151F.I'll pull a sample and
see how it tastes. I've been using a refractometer for readings, so I will see if the
hydrometer agrees ...

Oh brew wizards, I have a problem.I have brewed a Belgian Saison using the Wyeast 3724 on July
21st (which is notoriously sticky), and my gravity stuck at 1.025. I know what I did wrong, and
what I ha...

Try gently stirring with wort with a sanitized spoon to get some of the yeast that may have
dropped to the bottom back suspended in the liquid.I did that, and it's helped a little (1.025
down to 1.020...

I'm brewing a Hefe and a Saison right now, the Saison is using the Wyeast Belgian Saison (3724)
and the hefe is using the Weihenstephan Weizen (3068).I pitched the saison on July 21st, and
the Hefe on...

I've had that happen before. Give it another week. the fermentation is probably just trickling
along nice and slow right now.

the 1L swingtop bottles seem to be able to take the pressure, the rest (a mix of 330mL and
650mL bottles) seem stable now. The belgian (Duvel/Draak) style bottles are all intact, thicker
glass I guess...
