Last question first: Yes, dry hop it a week before bottling.

As for adding another yeast - do you need to? What's the gravity at now? You're investing a lot of time and effort into this brew -...

I've done this before - Suppose you want to end up with 5 gallons at 1.080 - Beersmith will tell you how much grain to use. Then, run off about 3/4 gallon more than you normally would to account for...

This is a matter of personal preference. Since you want more, next time try a pound. If that turns out too strong, dial it back to .75 pounds.

You can also get Marris Otter LME, that might help...

I do a Scottish ale fairly regularly. After 3 weeks in bottles at room temp, I store them cool for as long as I can stand it. If you have room in a fridge, you could do that.

Cheers!

After your primary was done, virtually all the fermentable sugars were gone. Your berries didn't really add that much, so don't expect to see a lot of activity. Just relax, don't worry, let them...

How do you know they were at FG? It's not a number, it's how the process develops. If the beer is still fermenting, it's not at FG, no matter what the number is.

Most likely, you just need a...

The Mash That Didn't

OK so, Ive been brewing for four years, have dozens of all-grain batches under my belt, and I've never had a mash that didn't convert. Until tonight.

I have my doubts about that "1.060" reading. Could it be 1.006? That would make more sense.

I'd go with the oranges. Be sure to grate some of the peel (or, lots of the peel) for late in the boil.

But, it all depends on what you like. If it were mine, I would keep the hops low so as not...

What equipment do you have?

It's a 10 gallon recipe, so start by dividing everything in half.

Well, you say you've got 5.25 gallons in the fermentor. You'll probably have about 5 gallons in the bottling bucket. I'd go with that for now.

If you're worried about the amount of priming sugar...

Yes, but what you want to see is two readings that are the same - indicating that fermentation is complete.

Wow. I think it's way too early to write off the batch as a loss. Give it time - lots of it. Check the gravity, and let it go another 3 weeks. And, RDWHAHB.

Yeah, you made some mistakes. BFD....

You started with 4.7 gal and a SG of 1.036. (Refractomer, hydrometer, or both??) This gives 169 gravity points.
