- Reaction score
I brewed an IPA (mashed at 154F) 2 weeks ago with an OG of 1.063 and pitched 1 package of London Ale III (no starter). To say fermentation was less than vigorous is an understatement. After 1 week it was down to 1.030, 4 days later 1.021. At this point I warmed the temp to 72F and gently swirled my bucket. Today at the 2 week mark it's still sitting at 1.021. There's still a layer of yeast/krausen on top of the beer, but that seems common with this yeast strain. My plan now is to make a small starter, about .5 liter, and pitch that, but the question is what yeast should I use? Stick with London Ale III or switch to WLP001?
