I am such an idiot....I was using a refractometer and forgot to do the conversion
calculation...It's actually at 1.010. Now I'm just worried because it's still showing some
activity, haha. I don't wan...

very odd... I just used it in a Bel Pale Ale...went from 1.053 to 1.006 (in 7 days...which is
pretty much standard when i use it). I too would suggest warming it to the upper end of it's

Would you suggest using a cheap heating pad, like from Walmart? I don't think there's enough
heat being generated from the fermentation activity to "trap" by wrapping it with a blanket or

Hello everyone! I've unfortunately run across my first stuck fermentation. (Queue sad

It's a pretty subjective thing. May be more susceptible in general with pilsner malt. But the

I think DMS mostly applies to Pilsner malt, but I don't know that much about it. I just leave
the lid off and don't worry about it.As far as Brulosopher's exBeeriments, I enjoy them too,
but I wonder ...

Also, I guess I should mention that even though I had a lid on, it was not very tight fitting.
