    A bit higher final gravity

    Hi, i got 1.015 final, and i expect it to be around 1.010. Does it make sence to keep it for a few days more? I used M44 Jack yeast, fermentation for 9 days.

    Safale US-05 store temperature

    Hi, I keep my Safale US-05 in a fridge, but the temperature there was around 10 Celsius, which is below the recommended values. It was there for a month, can I use them, or they are wasted and better to buy a new one?

    Dextrose sludge in bottle

    Hi all, i have bottled my first brew 1.5 week ago. Before bottling, i added dextrose to the bottom of each bottle, and now i can see a sludge at the bottom. Is this because i need to wait more, or because i added to much dextrose (5g on 0.5 L) with a low gravity (OG1.043 to FG1.004). Or i do i...

    Yeast over pitch

    Hi, i have added one package of Fermentis Safale US-05 to a 5 litres of wort with 1.060 gravity. As i found out later from different calculators, that i have to use 1/3 of a package. Did i over pitched, and how i may affect the result?
