Hey Guys,
I'm brewing a Cream Ale using WLP051 on a 1bbl electric system. OG 1.065 It's been 2 and 1/2 weeks in the conical. On week two a gravity was taken with a hydrometer at 1.026. I have the ol' shake/swirl of the conical and increased temp to help the yeast activate. I'm still seeing bubbling pretty consistently in the blow-off Erlenmeyer flask. After mixing it up the bubbles are pretty quick. 1/2 second apart or so. After some time it goes down to about a bubble every 2 seconds. I just took another gravity reading and am still at 1.022. It tastes fine but is still sweet, consistent with the 65% attenuation.
I used 3 packs in a 4L starter for this batch on a stir plate.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Danny

What was your OG, and what's your target FG?

I recognize that you posted this almost a month ago, so you've likely either packaged or dumped it by now. How did it turn out?
