So I have a raging fermenter that collected a great deal of yeast into the pitcher of Star San.
I also have some bottles of an imperial stout that never carbonated after nearly a year. Could
I use the...

Final Update on stuck quad: I got it down to 1.013-PERFECT! It comes in at 9.2 ABV-right where
