  • Posted in thread: Why is my final gravity always too high? on 03-29-2014 at 04:29 PM
    the most likely culprit in this situation is the high mash temp. other variables that affect a
    high FG can include not enough oxygen, pitching too little yeast, pitching low viability yeast,

    I think some brewers from bells have suggested you use the yeast from their best brown ale
    instead of THA because it's the same strain but they arent as stressed after a 7% ABV beer as

    Let's say your basement held a steady temp of 62. You pitch your yeast at 68 and place your

    like many have said you can set the margin of error. I think 0.3 is as low as it gets. you can
    also set the compressor delay, the max is 10 thats where I have mine set. I also unplug which
    ever device...
