    I did brew the extract recipe exactly as is.I did the reading pre bottling - so de-gassing
    wasn't the issue.This was actually my first yeast starter, active fermentation was great. I

    Forgot to mention I did know my OG at 1.053, so I was happy with that. I used a hydrometer to
    measure both OG and FG.I can't really answer why your beer stalled out around 1.020...without

    Any thoughts on priming this recipe with 4oz of maple syrup? More specifically bourbon barrel
    aged maple syrup ( Just brewed it this weekend and had some vanilla infused maple a while back

    Maple syrup does not ferment entirely out. Corn sugar or cane sugar, which does basically
