I have a Vienna Lager that I brewed Sunday and used a cake of WLP833 that I brewed a Maibock with, I did a 2 stage starter on that beer and it fermented for 17 days, 54F 10 days, 58F 3 days, 60F 3days, 64F 4 days. I checked Monday morning (morning after brewing)and is was bubbling nice, I checked it a few hours later and the thermometer inside the fermentation chamber read 93F, I opened it up and saw that the probe fell off, and the beer was warm, I shut the chamber off, and kept it open, it is in the garage, and is was really cold yesterday, I checked it like 4 hours later and it stopped bubbling. I waited for the carboy to cool, and turned it on at 54F. Its stabilized, but 24 hours later and fermentation hasn't resumed. Any ideas on a solution, not panicking yet, but would like to head off trouble. Thanks in advance.
