I have a follow up question to this thread. My IIPA has been brewed since Monday night. Now, it was bubbling in my blow off 2 hours after I pitched (2 sachets on a 5 gallon batch), and it rocked hard (I mean HARD!) for 2 days. The OG was 1.092. My blow off (airlock connected to 1/2" tubing) was blowing out (at the peak) 2 full-sized bubbles per second. Now, the blow off is absolutely still. It couldn't possibly have finished fermenting all of that sugar that quickly, could it?
I know I should take a reading, but it's late and I'm going out of town tomorrow. Will it keep until Monday? Do I have a stuck fermentation?
Most likely it's done. I pitched an IPA on a S-04 cake and it finished in 2.5 days. But as ^^^^^ the hydro will say. I would let it sit for 7-10 days before doing anything...
I have heard of folks getting up to 14% with this yeast BTW, by adding oxygen 24 hours into fermentation, rousing the yeast, and adding some sugar mid way through fermentation along with Fermaid-K.
