    The kegs I use are slightly different than the traditional corny kegs. They are the compact
    ones from williams brewing and are about 4 inches shorter, but a little wider (I believe 1
    inch). I'm lookin...

  • Posted in thread: Should I pitch more yeast-didn't rehydrate on 08-02-2013 at 08:36 PM
    Thanks for the replies. So adding more yeast while the beer is at high krausen will not do
    anything? I guess I'm gonna ride this one out. Does anyone know how many yeast cells are in a
    danstar pack? I...

    I did a BIAB brew of an IPA using Danstar's with West Coast Ale dry yeast. The OG was 1.074,
    and the final volume after trub loss in the kettle ended up being around 4 gal.Looking at Mr.
    Malty it says...

    If you racked onto another yeast cake and nothing happened, I'd think pitching more yeast would
    be a waste of time. The airlock activity could have been degassing. Id bottle it and be curious
    forever ...

    Out of curiosity, have you calibrated your hydrometer?Yes, it''s about 2 pts higher, so I'm at
    about 1.026 when this beer should be at 1.012 or 1.010

    UpdateI pitched onto the US-5 yeast cake, and got some good co2 activity, and it seemed like
    fermentation restarted. After 5 days, I took a hydro reading and it is still at 1.028. Didn't
    move one bit,...

    I'd try that other yeast you mentioned or I would slowly heat and swirl it daily. It's been
    long enough that all the flavor is there so temp won't do anything bad. I'd put this in the
    warmest part of ...

    Not to beat a dead horse here but you have to physically use a hydrometer for FG readings. A
    refractomoter does not work in the presence of alcohol.I did use a hydrometer after I
    transferred to the se...

    Just to be clear, you used a hydrometer? I know how the conversion works from brix. We are
    asking bc once fermentation has started a refractometer can be significantlyinaccurate.YES, I
    did use a hyrdo...

    Well, I lost my readings from the initial refractometer. Either way, when I transferred to the
    secondary it read 11 brix. Two weeks after transferring to the secondary it still read 11 brix,
    and the h...
