    Yea i would give it a shot. Not familiar with refractometer use but if what other poster said
    is true, test with hydrometer and get accurate reading. You should be past the point now where
    warm temps ...

    What was the OG and how long has it been? Don't add yeast or aerate, just because fermentations
    acted different doesn't mean the yeast stopped working. Like others said take gravity readings
    every few...

    I agree with kev, check your gravity with hydrometer. Thats the only sure way to know if its
    working. Some fermentations are more vigorous than others so relying on signs of activity is
    sometimes diff...

    Also very interested to see how this turns out. Being from Michigan this is almost to good to
    be true :) As other have mentioned though would want the tc fittings. Basically I would be
    looking for sim...

    I think I just used some in a brew a few months ago. I belive the alpha was around 3% just as
    the above poster said. It could be possible to be only 1.5 though i'd probably go with whats on
    the packag...

    i just put mine on the floor of the freezer. I figure the fermentors will be sitting on the
    floor so that would be a good place to measure temp.

    you should be fine, according to mrmalty 1.4 packs of 11.5g yeast packets are required so you
    were pretty much spot on as far as pitching rate.Edit - sorry didnt see 3 gal batch size. 1
    pack would hav...

    Are you measuring OG before your boil. Before the boil the gravity reading will be lower
    because you should end up with more volume then 5 gallons before the boil. The OG should be
    measured post boil ...
