    The only way to stop it is to kill the yeast. You'll need heat to do that. It'll keep
    fermenting to the limit of fermentation, which is about 85% of the OG. For you, that's
    1.012.Sulfites would do it ...

    Alternatively, if the gravity goes too low, you could add some lactose in to raise it back up.
    I bet it'll turn out pretty nice as is.That is true, but I think I will live with the 1.012,
    which is tot...

    1.022So, where does it stop?I am happy to see the gravity drop, but I really didn't want a dry

    The Beer Market was really good. I ended up going there like 3 times during the week.

    For the party you could just rent something or get a jockey box (you do not need to keep the

    Enzymash has high quality enzymes in small quantities. The problem I see with cultured enzymes
    is getting them to stop where you want them. It's easy to have a ferment drop to 0sg.I was
    wondering abou...

    Hey, that's good news. Looks like you did have some starch left from your mash. Also good that
    you didn't have to resort to beano as I hear that can turn your beer to mich ultra, and I'm not
    sure what...

    The fermentation is stuck at 1.030, with a 1.080 OG.Last evening (11/16/2015 - 5:30pm PST) I
    pulled the lid back from my conical and spooned in 3 to 3.5 teaspoons of BSG Amylase formula
    powder.By 9:00...
