Posted in thread: Bubbles in airlock after adding hops on 11-17-2013 at 01:00 AM
I figured that it was done fermenting since it had been going for 3 weeks and I wasn't seeing
any airlock activity.However, I did have my room cold for fermentation (high 50s, low 60s).
Maybe my yeast...

I toss in 1 oz of hops the other day into my primary fermenting carboy. My beer has been in the

So I poured in my water/LME mix and decide to add some dry yeast Safale 04 just to get things
going again. There is just a pile of the yeast on top of the Krausen ... It does look like the

What I have done here is put the carboy in a bucket of cold water for when I am fermenting.
This is a 3gal glass carboy in a home depot paint bucket. I have a fan blowing on the bucket
and will add ic...

as normal?If so, then no worries. I do this every time I brew.
