Yeast will stay alive well below freezing temps as long as the medium (in this case the beer) hasn't frozen.

I would go noble hops (hallertau or tettnang) and 1056/001 for the yeast. I would keep the ibu/starting gravity ratio around .4 to .5. Look for a solid chocolate stout recipe and add some pumpkin...

What is the temp of the fermentation and did you aerate? Slow start could be due to temp shock or yeast taking their time to multiply. Also what was the abv of the original batch you harvested from?...

Starters can be up to 85 as long as you decant the starter beer. There will be significant off flavors in the starter, but the yeast won't have mutated more than normal.

I would guess the us-05 would attenuate it further than you want. You really think Windsor won't get to 1.019? That's about 71% from 1.065 and a quick search shows that Windsor can get up that high....

I'd guess they're ok. I'd also guess the yeast are still alive as the temps didn't get too high.

Yep. Let it go until it's done. I'm guessing you might have underpitched? How much yeast did you use?

After an hour, most of the yeast should still be in suspension and the trub will be what settles. I follow a similar procedure except I only let the trub settle for about 10 minutes, then I decant...

Yep, let it ride another week or two. If you still have that much activity after 2 weeks, I'd say you didn't pitch enough yeast. For next time, use a yeast pitch rate calculator to see how much yeast...

In one of his podcasts (I believe it was a recent Brew Strong) he said lower ferm temps enhance banana esters. He might mention it in his hefeweizen episode in the earlier Jamil show podcasts.

It depends on how long it will be stored. If it's in a flask without a good way to seal, then the longest I would keep it is 2 weeks in the fridge. I would be worried about infection at this point....

Leave the yeast on the counter while you're brewing to let it warm up. Pour out the liquid to decant. Siphoning would work too as long as you don't suck up the good stuff. Most of the yeast will have...

Jamil claims lower fermentation temps increase the banana eaters in hefeweizen yeasts... Kind of counter-intuitive, but yeast and esters are mysterious that way.

+1 to making a smaller beer first. Make a 2 gallon batch of a smaller lager, then rack the wort onto the yeast cake. You'll have the right number if cells and more beer to drink!

I just lager in the keg on pressure. There is less chance for oxidation and infection that way. Also, optimum temp for this yeast is 48-58. For my lagers, I cool to 44 before pitching, then raise...

Maybe try the krausening technique where you add some fermenting beer to it to try to restart fermentation.

Yeah, racking to secondary after 2 days is a really bad idea... It takes away a lot of the yeast that is still working near the bottom of the fermenter and can cause lags/incomplete fermentations. ...
