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

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

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
