HELP!

I may have a stuck fermentation. I am currently in Ferm of an Irish Stout. It was set to Ferm 2/7/2011 and noticed no airlock activity 2/10/2011. Ferm temp is a consistent 72F. OG:1.044 SG: 1.020 (as of 2/10) Pre-determined FG: 1.011. Yeast pitched at 73F. Am I stuck or is the the superman of yeasts...(Brewers Best Nottingham yeasts)

You are worrying about your gravity after 3 days of fermentation? Give it a few weeks then worry. For now, begin planning your next brew.

Agreed, give it more time (like 2-3 weeks), it will get there. 72F also seems a little warm for fermenting.

Yeah I know I have plenty of time on the ferm. I was more concerned about the Co2 not expelling via airlock. This is my first go at this new set up so I'm just covering some bases and gathering opinions just in case

Give it a hard jiggle and keep it warm. It will be done in a week or two.
