Good tips and tricks. I will implement all of this on my next batch. I don't think I'll add more yeast. Maybe I'll let it go 3 weeks and test to see if I hit my mark. I really want to continue using...

Honestly I think it may have been 70* because we were shocked when it got down that low. I live in SoCal and the water temps here are pretty hot. I'll try to keep cooling to get lower than 70*.

Well that's good to hear too. I like White Labs because it's easy. But they did come out and say that their yeast requires a starter too. Should I get another vial and add it tmrw.

Maybe that's part of my problem. I'm not used to having cooler temps. I have always been at the mercy of the ambient temps of wherever the bucket ends up.

Ok so I didn't make a starter.

I use a strainer so the wort is clean and very aerated.

It's not a repitch.

Don't know the date on the vial

Pitching temp was 75*

No sun exposure. I do have a pump that we use for the wort chiller now. 150 gph pond pump. It's a small one but works great.
