I brewed a milk stout three weeks ago (original gravity of 1.066) and I checked the gravity today to bottle only to see that it was only at 1.026 (not 1.017 in the recipe). I put it back in the closet for another week but am wondering if I will have to repitch yeast next weekend when (and if) it is ready to bottle. Thanks in advance.
where did you get the 1.017 from? the 1.026 sounds a little high, but based on the recipe its not that far off. lactose is totally unfermentable and dark/crystal malts are mostly unfermentable, so 75% attenuation is a bit of a reach on this one
I got the ingredients from Brewmasters Warehouse and used their brew builder to calculate everything for the recipe. I think I'm going to let it sit another week, check the gravity wed. and friday and if its ready bottle on saturday?
