Thanks for the replies. I'm used to using starters so they usually take off within 8 hours or

So I brewed a pumpkin ale that I've done several times in the past with no problems using S-05.

The thing is I haven't added the watermelon juice yet which restarts the fermentaion so I was

So in the future should I be checking my og at flameout? Normally I'm adding water to top up

this recipe the...

I did Biermuncher's Blue Balls recipe and missed my og by 6 gravity points so I was going to
add some DME to bump it up. Question is what to add. I have some plain extra light I use for
