This is my third beer and first post to HBT. (Total noob.) Thanks for the help!
Isn't fleishmanns bread yeast or am i way off? If it is go to your home brew store and get some notty or online. I doubt bread yeast would work very well. I never tired it. So5 will work in a pinch, also good to keep on hand since it's dry yeast.

Yup, it's bread yeast. Thanks for the tip. So I can toss additional yeast into the bucket once my brew has already been sitting in primary for a few days (and seemingly/slowly fermenting with the Fleischmann's)?

No I don't think that will help you out now. It might be too late. The bread yeast will make beer...but who knows what kind!

If I were you I would just let it go. Next time order some dry ale yeast.

Also, and what do you guys think about this? Should I try some spring water next time, instead of my well water?

I thought your question was already answered. The reason why it isn't in the extract recipe is because victory malt must be mashed.

Thanks. Ok so could I just steep it? Not the same but close right? or would that be a bad idea?

Thanks

I can't remember if victory can convert itself. If it can then a long steep (mash) would work.

I never saw anything about priming sugar for this recipe?
5 oz. priming sugar? Would that be OK?

Thx,
