Because you see it bubbling again, does not mean it is resuming an active fermentation. It is

I had a few minutes, so I threw your recipe into BeerSmith. I set the style as a Scottish Light
60 Schilling, and it's pretty much in style. If you add another 2lbs of Amber DME, making it 3
Posted in thread: Chinook Single hop special pale...I would love thoughts comments.. on 12-26-2010 at 09:19 PM
