    Should i or should i not

    Have an ale with a gravity of 1.040 after a OG of 1.075 it's an pumpkin ale at about 68f. I always pitch an safe us.05 yeast in the beginning and them two days later I use pitch again with a nutrient. But this time I'm wanting to use an energizer with the nutrient, just wanting thoughts thank you.

    Another fermintation question

    Got another newbie question. I did an American Pale Ale I added an extra pound of DME to it so instead of the calculated 1.051-1.055 I kept it at 1.070. Much higher. So I brewed last night no signs of fermenting until this afternoon. It's very slow compared the weizenbier. Should I let it ride...

    When should i add corn sugar

    Got a question, I don't think it matters but I'm always low on my original gravity reading. So for a safe run I'm going to add corn sugar. When and is there a time to add my sugar at the end of my boil or middle or the beginning? Very appreciative for any inputs.

    I did a kit 3 weeks ago and my SG was 1.045 and I did the same kit this past weekend and I got a 1.040 I used the same ingredients about the same time of brewing. The only thing I think I did different is I used a sock for my hops. And both times I took SG readings it was around 70 degrees. Just...
