    Temp gauge location too high

    On your kit instructions it says boil 2.5 gallons or more...go with or more...Id say depending on the circumference of your 9 gallon kettle to boil with 6-6.5 gallons until you boil off the x-tra 1-1.5 gallons to achieve the 5 gallons from most kits.

    Fermentation temps are a consistent 66-68°...it took about 12 hrs to show signs through the airlock but it bubbled like he'll until Sunday morning then it slowed down to nothing.

    chocolate milk stout stall?

    On 4/7/14 I made the BB CMS kit,pitched at 3:00 pm and OG was 1.045,on 4/14 I added 4oz of cacao nibs soaked in about 1/2 pint vodka. I did it all in the primary didnt want to secondary as things started out so well. Well now its 12 days into fermentation and I appear to be stuck at 1.026...
