I've always pitched the same yeast.With only ~7 points to go, you probably won't pick up much
secondary yeast flavor unless it's a Brett strain. Saisons yeasts usually have high attenuation

With 75% attenuation and adding 6 points to your FG with lactose, your FG should be around
1.021. So I agree you probably have a stuck fermentation.The only thing I found that reliably

My OG on milk stout was 1.060 for 10 gallons and 1.8 lbs of lactose. The mash was a 20 minute
acid rest at 104, 30 minutes at 140, and 30 minutes at 158. The fermentation started about a
little over 2...

you are fine, you killed a bunch of yeast pitching dry yeast into wortso no worry S_MTrue. at
~200 billion cells per packet, I routinely over pitch because I usually need a more than 200

Did you hydrate the yeastNo. I never rehydrate US-05. I just sprinkle it in the wort.

Thanks. I don't plan to do it again. I was just tired and got a little lazy and didn't do the
calculation I normally do to find the right pitch rate. Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew

Everything I can find about the negative effects of over pitching yeast talks almost
exclusively about knocking out onto YEAST CAKE. However, all I did was accidentally
miscalculate and pitch 3 instea...

No, that should be fine.Are you concerned about mash pH? or just that it's a bit thinner than
some do?Not worried about mash pH. Was able to get that down to right range with use of pH
meter and phosp...

I accidentally left the HLT valve open and got way too much water in my mash. It is now to the
point of about 2.3 quarts per pound. Should I just call it quits since pretty early and just
get new grai...
