[quote="DocScott"]Something is wrong here. No way the gravity is that low on this beer, and
definitely not with those crystal malts in there.I'd check the calibration of your hydrometer
first. Make su...

The higher temps will certainly encourage the yeast, but I think other factors might be
involved. Was this all-grain and was your mash temp low?This is a partial mash recipe. I
steeped the following a...

I am attempting to brew an "Oktoberfest" Ale with Dusseldorf Alt Yeast. After the boil and
chilled the wort to just below 80 degrees F, I took the OG which was at 1.050 ( corrected for
temp). The reci...

Well, it looks like this recipe was a hit. My husband and my friends love it. The next time I
brew this I may add the same amount of hops as it seems to work well with the amber ale style.

Well, I just tasted my amber after fling them upside down for a few days, flipping them right
side up for another few days and chilling them for another few. It's tasting pretty damn good!

As far as the carbonation is concerned, there is no reason to worry that you don't have enough
viable yeast in the bottles. It's there. Don't worry.It just needs more time. Chances are that
this time ...

rouse the yeast by turning upside down for 3 days, back right side up for 3 days, then fridge
for 3 daysThank you. I will try this. I will let you know how it goes in about a week. ;-)

I'd recommend halving the recipe. I believe hops need a bit of malt in the boil kettle to
isomerize properly.Also, resist the urge to start branching out if you can. Take baby steps,
grasshopper! If y...

How long has it been since packaging? There's no way that 3 weeks would change the viability of
the yeast. If you have already bottled it, there's not a helluva lot you can do to carb it up
