This is my first attempt at homebrewing and it doesn't look good!
I had a good frothy head on my batch in the fermenting bin for about a day but then it cleared and the gravity has stuck at 1010 (it's supposed to be below 1006). I have tried rousing the yeast by stirring gently but this has had no effect. It's been in the fermenting bin now for 9 days. Does this just mean that it's finished, or has it not even really started?
Would really appreciate any help you can offer.
There are a multitude of things that affect fermentation and a change to any one variable can change the way your fermentation proceeds; the stats listed on instructions should be looked at as guidelines, not hard and fast targets.
Higher gravity will give your beer more flavor and body.
And now we go AG!
