Shouldn't. You likely still had more than enough yeast in suspension to finish the job. Just keep in mind that patience is critical with lagers. Then once you are done with fermentation, let them...

Give it more time. There could be any number of reason why the one batch still has a high gravity. It could be that that yeast simply is less aggressive, or that it was less viable at pitching...

My gut feeling is it isn't worth it. I've heard of people throwing hops in the mash, and of course a lot of people practice first wort hopping. My taste buds have never noticed much difference than...

No, there is no need to do the protein rest. Most pale malts are sufficiently modified that anything beyond a single infusion really isn't needed, and in my opinion, doesn't accomplish much other...

There is nothing wrong with this recipe as is. However, my first thought is to get rid of the wheat. I don't think it really does anything for you in this style except add some head retention and...

Thanks everybody for your advice. I brewed today, and drilled more (and slightly bigger) holes in my manifold, which did indeed help the wort flow a little better. Then I opened the valve from the...

This is a valuable point. It is far better to teach your children to drink well rather than to drink cheap. My son, only 14 and not yet allowed to drink, occasionally helps me brew. He also...

Ferment warm. The yeast will add its own spiciness and enhance the spices you add to your beer. If it's your first saison, ferment warmer than you think. I've known people who have let their beer get...

In my opinion, you don't absolutely need to pressurize your keg -- you don't pressurize your bottles, do you? As the priming sugar is fermented, the yeast will produce it's own CO2.

I would imagine. I guess at this point there's no harm in trying. If it smells funky, I probably wouldn't brew it, but otherwise, for a few bucks you pick up some fresh hops and yeast.

IslandLizard is correct. Because your yeast pack is so old, you had a relatively small number of viable yeast cells. They'll come back.

Also, keep in mind that it is common not to "see" activity...
