    I haven't seen actual bubbles coming up to the surface, but it sure sounds peppy! Sounds good
    to me. It'll probably clear through that amount of sugar in a very short time. Looking forward
    to hearing ...

    Absolutely, it can form and drop in 4 days! Can't believe you didn't look at it over that time.
    :)Check your gravity to know when to bottle.

    Ah nice, you definitely did well setting it up, and that temperature should be fine. Let it
    keep on chugging then!

    Munich historically had harder water (hence its development of darker beers, which would help
    lower the pH). ...but try it with the soft water first, because I think you'll find it
    delicious as is, mo...

    I agree with the last post. Check the temp and swirl it around a bit to try to wake up the
    yeast.I have had some that I thought was finished in the secondary, moved them to a little
    warmer location an...

    Cold water input, you mean? Definitely, this works great. I just use two ICs, one in ice water
    and the other in the beer. Works great, especially if I don't bother adding ice 'till the wort

    Oh, nice! I'd been wondering about this myself - it's been a nervous proposition trying to pour
    sanitary wort into a potentially moving target. Great idea.

    If you're doing extract kits, you're probably fine, but as you use liquid yeast and move to
    all-grain, it becomes more important. Yeast does indeed want some particular mineral
    characteristics, but th...

    That is pretty chilly assuming it's an average US ale yeast, but you've done all you can by
    moving it to a warmer spot! Hang out a few days and hopefully your yeasty friends will be back
    up and boppin...

    Hops degrade exponentially faster at higher temperatures, so absolutely keep them cold when you
    can. As long as they're in the light-proof vacuumed packets you're in better shape, but I'm
    with TANSTAA...
