I have both dry pitched and rehydrated. I don't know which started quicker because they all started during the night. But it seems that sprinkling on would have to hydrate first, then start...

I don't know what you saw with the bubbling, maybe just pressure change as the temperature changed. If you have the same gravity reading now as you did originally you had no fermentation at all. ...

Without knowing the recipe I would say you made a big mistake. It will be beer, but not as it should have been. If there was dry malt extract it should have been added during the boil. (most...

You need to loop at your profile??? There is no location there.

Sorry I am not in need. Especially since I live all the way across the country!

There are quite a few problems here. You apparently are confusing a starter and rehydrating. A starter takes at least 18 hours on a stirplate and up to a couple of days without one. You said the...

It appears English is not his language. So the wording may make the questions appear strange.

Is it a kit? The directions should tell you when to add it. If it doesn't it is probably priming sugar to be used when bottling.

Check the calculators. Mrmalty says about 1.1 packs. Do not make starters with dry yeast. It is unnecessary. I do recommend rehydrating the dry yeast. Us-05 is a good yeast for an American...

I have never figured out the directions on dry yeast packages that say to sprinkle it over the surface of the wort. But, if you go to the websites they advise you to rehydrate the yeast first.

Did you only take one final gravity reading? If so I would not be willing to say it was done in 10 days. Bringing it back to warmer temperature, and swirling it a little may rouse the yeast...

The temperature was not hot enough to kill any yeast. In fact the yeast would be VERY happy at that temperature. It is just not optimum for flavor.

If the temperature was lowered before the...

In addition. Mark your carboy. Get a large measuring vessel and make marks at each gallon and...

What temperature did you have for the mash. Warmer will give a less fermentable wort, and a higher final gravity. The recipes give a target based on the grain bill and yeast's attenuation. It is...

It is not likely to be the Starsan.
It is more likely related to fermenting too warm. Control your fermentation temperatures to the mid sixties in most cases and your beer will be better.

I did a few extract batches this winger when I didn't want to brew outside. It was much warmer in the kitchen. So you may not really want to say goodbye.
