Just to close this out, I took a FG reading with a hydrometer and came up with 1.011 - which
was my target FG. Beer still tastes too sweet, but I'll see how it rounds out with carb and

I thought so, that's usually the case in about 90% of "stuck" fermentation threads.
Refractometers are not accurate when alcohol is present so you can't use them after
fermentation has begun without a...

Are you using a refractometer for the FG reading?Yes.I threw a space heater in my ferm chamber

Thanks guys. It's been a good lesson in when to take gravity readings, and that's preferably

I'll give it a ...

recommendations as I'm not at the point of being able to pick and choose for myself.Anyhow, I

I'm part-way through yet another tank of CO2 attempting to find a leak in my rig, and I was
wondering if a tubing mismatch could cause a leak. The tubing that was used for the gas line in
