    Popped open Primary for gravity Ready

    Appreciate the quick response. My F.G. was calculated at 1.014. The entire fermentation took place between 60-65F. So definitly on the low side. I had heard something about a hot mash effecting the attenuation so that could have been the problem.

    Will it really continue to Ferment at such a slow pace? if so that is cool I just would have never assumed it would. Would I do myself any good transfering the beer to a secondary to shake up the yeast and placing the secondary in room temperature? I put dry hops in a few days back so I...

    Popped open Primary for gravity Ready

    If I decide to bottle is there anything I can do to reduce the risk of bombs then? I just put in dry hops so I cant let this batch sit forever while I wait for it to ferment again.

    Popped open Primary for gravity Ready

    Brewed my first partial mash on Dec 16th. An IPA, so after a decent time in primary I took a gravity reading of 1.020. OG was 1.050. I have never had a beer stall here before and its also my first partial mash. Primary was in basement which is 60-65 f temperature. These was the recipe...

    It Needs To Be Tossed.....Just Say It.

    Some people just cant let go, at best your beer will probably only be slightly drinkable after many many months, I personally would throw away my beer to make space to brew new, really awesome beer but if you have the space and bottles, I guess it cant hurt to hold on. Ive dumped 10gal before
