My OG was 1.048. When I went to switch to a secondary about 2 weeks after primary my SG was about 1.028. I can't remember... I didn't right it down because I was mad.
I bought all of the ingredients and brewing go delayed... by a couple of months.... I made a starter and it didn't seem to have much yeast floating around, but I used it anyway.
Do you think I would be able to just add a new smack pack and save the beer? I tried stirring it when I was going to rack it and nothing happened. I keep the beer in my basement but the temps don't fall too low. At least when I have checked them. Maybe over nights it gets too cold?
I have brewed this recipe before without any problems. I also haven't changed anything in the way I brew. The only variable was the older yeast. Any help would be appreciated.
