My airlock activity has slowed considerable and I want to know if I should rouse the yeast (I typed all the info up regarding what it is when when I started it etc but lost about 15 min of typing so if more info is needed just ask) So here's my question-
Is it acceptable to agitate beer/apfelwein in the primary? I assume that they should be covered with a CO2 blanket that will keep them from getting oxidized. Is this a safe assumption?
Also I have them in my unheated mudroom (pronounced future brew room and it gets colder in there at night than I would like it to (~55F) I have a 100w lamp on them in an effort to keep them from getting too cold short of bringing them in the house is there anything else you would suggest?
