    This sort of thing I simply cannot understand. Do what you like with your own beer, of course.
    And it may even be true that your beer has no problems when you under pitch. But suggesting

    Murray, any success so far? Keeping fingers crossed for you.Vale

    Can you over yeast?Do you mean over-pitch? :pIn a commercial brewing setting you most
    definitely can, but they pitch with concentrated yeast slurry only. In a home brew setting I

    evident, and I really want to make this batch a winner.What do you think?This is definitely not
    a good sign,...

    gravity. I will give it another 5 or 6 days and see if it is still dropping, or has stopped. If
    it were to...
