Gives me a date of June 2011 so that should be fine. I do know they recalled a batch several months ago, this is not one of them. Just gets me thinking.

At this point, besides what I suggested to you via pm about getting some US-05, I would like you to take a grav reading now, let's see what the magic numbers say.

Just took a gravity reading. It is just about the same from when I put it in. A point or two difference I would imagine comes from the temp difference in the basement versus after cooling the wort (64 basement, 75 cooled wort) but that is it at most.

I went and looked at the reading a couple more times carefully and I don't think there was any change at all.

Might be time for some US-05 yeast???

But tell us what the numbers are first.

And right now bring it upstairs, a slight raise in temps may help wake up complacent yeast.

Original Gravity 1.058
Gravity Now: 1.058

I am getting ready to leave for the better part of six hours. Should I just bring the carboy upstairs and leave it while I am gone? Also, should I give it a good shake or will carrying it upstairs be good enough?

You carrying it upstairs will shake it enough. Do that and go get some us-05. But for god sakes be careful with that carboy, use a milk crate or something.

Well a friend of mine came over on Tuesday night with some yeast he had made a starter from a previous batch. We pitched and by yesterday morning it was humming away. So all seems well including the wonderful smell of the hops

Thank you all for your advice and time. It is appreciated and I won't be using Nottingham anymore.
