I haven't encountered this problem before except with this high gravity recipe. I just wanted someone to confirm that this is probably why it's not fermenting out as it should.
def. way under-pitched.

check out yeastcalc.com - it is a great tool for stepping up starters.

you will be able to not only save a lot of money on yeast packs/vials, but you will be able to build a proper pitch for your beers. I would be excited to hear about the improvement of your beer with this augmentation of your process.

Gentlemen.....is there anything I can do with this beer now? Should, or can I, pitch some more yeast to get it to ferment out some more, or is stuck the way it is.
I will be making yeast starters from now on, with the high gravity beers.
Thanks.

I'd get more yeast and go for it.

I have some ready to drink on the 31st. It's good that I am half a country away or I might try one before there are done!

Brewed my first partial mash with this recipe and it is chugging through the blow off tube! Mashed at 149, but after 45 minutes it had dropped about 4-5 degrees. Batched sparged with 184 twice. I used a 3 gallon gatorade cooler with a paint strainer bag.

5lbs MO
1.25 Thomas Fawcett Amber Malt
8lbs Briess Pilsen DME

Mixed the appropriate hops and dropped in a handfull every 5 minutes for the 90 minute boil.

Pitched with a 1L starter of Ringwood yeast.

OG came out to 1.090 and hopville estimated 1.086.

I'm getting the itch to brew this one again. Might need to do a 10 gallon batch so it's around longer this time.

For what it's worth, I increased the mash temp to 153. It gave it a bit more mouth feel and compensated a bit for the drop in mash temp over the hour. I use a 10 gal cooler and with the grain load would stir every 10 minutes, which causes a bit more drop in temp than might I might otherwise get.

Gave this one a try last night. My efficiency was low. I know why I didn't hit my gravity but my question is how much should I adjust hop schedule for a batch that ended up around 1.065?

I reduced my boiling hops by about 1.5 oz. Dry hopping with 4 oz seems like a little much. Suggestions?

So I have read through this 32 page thread and have a quick question. Has anyone done this BIAB method? If so what size pot and how much water did you start with or did you also sparge. I always follow simpleBIABcalculator.com for water volumes and it says I need north of 9 gallons for this and it will not fit in my 10.5 gallon pot. Thoughts?
