Yeah, after 1 1/2 weeks it's still stuck at 1.25.
I've swirled the carboy 2-3 times and each time I get gas bubbles for a few days but it's not fermenting more. I'm just put in a cooler with water and an aquarium to see about getting it up to a constant 70 instead of the 65-66 it was sitting at.
Does anyone have any other suggestions for getting the fermentation started again? The final FG should be around 1.015-1.021 so am not sure if it's done or just stuck.
