    Final Gravity

    Wondering about being out 2 to 6 points on final gravity and having bottle bombs? 1.039 og everything seems to have come to a halt at 1.010. According to the instructions and from reading the forums 1.008-1.006 is what it "should" bottom out at. Any thoughts?

The batch came through the brewing process with an OG 1.056, a little high but I also only collected 4.5g on a 5.0g batch. I pitched rehydrated US-05, as I always do, but this time I added yeast nutrient and...

    Fermentation is done but FG is high?

    Hi all! Hoping some experts could help me with my oatmeal stout. I used a "Brewer's Best" Oatmeal Stout kit. This is the first time I've ever used grains. (partial extract and partial grains kit). The instructions that came with the kit here...
