    ^^This^ if you have not been to adjust your refractometer reading after alcohol is present,
    this may be your issue.One thing not mentioned is your aeration of wort. This is a common
    problem as well....

    My guess is underpitching, and on a related note that your yeast viability isn't what you think
    it is. One smack pack for a beer for that OG range is an underpitch from the start, and would
    be made wo...

    Or calibrate your hydrometer. My old one was off by .006, I had to subtract .006 from every
    measurement. Use distilled water and a temp adjustment chart.I'm using a refractometer. I
    tested it with wat...

    I'll bet your thermometer isn't reading very accurately. Try calibrating it and report
    back.Also a good thought. For my last brew I calibrated the thermometer and used a back up
    digital probe to ensur...

    I'd be willing to bet your mash temp was too high. Try mashing at 150, and make sure you aerate
    properly. When was the last time you tested the accuracy of your thermometer?Thanks for the
    thought, but...

    I've been brewing all grain for about 4 years. I've used White Labs and Wye Yeast with great
    results. Recently I moved states and away from my brewing buddies and purchased my own
    equipment. I'm using...

    My BSIIPA (Belgain Style Imperial IPA) is still chugging away. I'm down to the 11th day and the
    airlock is still bubbling every 1-2 seconds. Last night I plugged in the total amount of sugar
    I've adde...

    I brewed it last sunday, 15 August. I hit a starting gravity of 1.100 without dextrose. I'm on
    day 4 now. I mixed things up a bit and took a little bit of Tasty's advice and a little of
    Jamil's advice...

    Thanks for the update Pat. I'm going to do this in August but use a Belgian yeast insteaed of
    Cal Ale. I don't have a conical either so I'll have simliar challenges with racking.

    Pat, Any updates on this brew? How did it turn out? What were your biggest challenges?
