I brewed the recipe found on this site called Honey Bear Snot, found here: Honey bear Snot
I am approaching the bottling mark of 3 weeks in primary only (per the recipe), and gravity reading is only at about 1.030. I initially pitched 2 completed slap packs of the scottish ale yeast, and 2 days into it, fermention was pretty violent, so I know something happened.
Should I pitch some more yeast? Advice?
