So I made a Quaker stout:
6 lbs amber LME
2 lbs Dark DME
.75 lbs English Crystal malt
.5 lbs chocolate malt
.25 lbs black patent malt
.5 lbs roasted barely
1 lbs rolled oats
My original gravity was 1.071 which was on mark but my gravity reading that i took the other day was 1.026 when the recipe called for 1.018 to 1.022.
It has been in the primary for 3 weeks and I did not make a starter. I used liquid yeast WY1084 and a packet of dry yeast that my LHBS said matched the Irish Ale yeast.
I was planning on moving it to a secondary and leaving it there for at least 3 more weeks. Am I being paranoid? Do you think the yeast is still working and will drop the gravity down to my target? Or is my yeast all done and I need to agitate it or give it some more?
As always thanks for the advice guys
