Status update: After repitching yeast (starter) didn't work, I tried the dilution trick. Saw no

Status update: fermentation went well (used white labs sweet mead yeast) for the first week or
so. SG was 1.105 and came down to 1.030 before getting stuck. I find this a little odd because

Hello all. I recently brewed my first lager, an Oktoberfest. Just transferred it to secondary,
